Proper pruning enhances the beauty of almost any landscape tree and shrub. It is an art and science, and when done well, pruning can turn a landscape plant into a thing of beauty.
This is a pruning basics class and intended for those with limited pruning experience and will address basic pruning concepts associated with flowering trees and shrubs, vines, and ground covers as well as the shaping of hedges. Classroom session lecture will cover pruning tools, when and why to prune, and the differences between thinning and heading back. The Saturday class will be hands-on, in-the-field, so please wear appropriate clothing and bring gloves and hand pruners.
