Pruning your trees and shrubs can beautify your landscape and improve the growth and health of your plants. Learn the basics of pruning, plus some advanced techniques in this hands-on workshop with arborists Lee Dean and Daniel Weitoish. An indoor session to discuss tools, techniques, and safety will be followed by hands-on lessons in the F.R. Newman Arboretum with a wide variety of woody plants. We will travel by carpool or van and by foot to various locations; please dress for the weather and be prepared to walk through snow.
