Pruning II: Dormant-Season Pruning

This class will be offered in Spring of 2018

Head out into the field to learn new skills. The dormant season is a good time to see plant structure and accomplish many pruning tasks. Renovation of overgrown shrubs, pruning of small trees, and corrective pruning will be discussed and demonstrated. Directions to the class site will be emailed before the class.

Pruning Session I or another basic pruning class is a prerequisite for this class.

 This class is a component of the three-part Pruning Certificate, taught by Mike Tanzini of Ted Collins Tree & Landscape. The series will cover the principles and techniques of pruning shrubs and small trees in the home landscape. Classroom instruction will be supplemented with in-field demonstrations presented at the appropriate time of year. Classes may be taken individually if there is room; with preference given to Certificate students.
