Research shows that properly pruning young shade trees will greatly increase their health, beauty and longevity.  Research also indicates that improper pruning will destroy the young tree and prevent it from ever becoming a mature specimen.  

Learn how to properly prune and train young shade trees in this hands-on field training session.  The program will begin with a talk on proper pruning techniques, which limbs to remove and how to remove them.  Then the class will move to the field where proper techniques will be demonstrated, followed by supervised pruning where you can try your hand on some young trees.  

Dress For The Weather and Bring hand saws, hand pruners, pole saws and pole pruners.  If you do not have proper pruning tools, do not buy them before the class.  Good tools will be discussed.
