Name: HANDS-ON PRUNING WORKSHOP FOR HOMEOWNERS
Date: September 13, 2017
Time: 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM EDT
Event Description:
All are invited to a tree education workshop led by Michigan State University’s David Roberts, PhD, that will teach the correct way to prune trees and shrubs for their long-term health and vitality.  Participants will learn the basics of pruning, including the biology of a tree, proper timing for pruning, and how to make a proper cut.  Safety will be stressed, and some pruning myths will be debunked.
The workshop will begin with a presentation, followed by a hands-on workshop so participants can practice proper pruning cuts during the session.  If you have hand pruners, please bring them.  Afterwards, the class can join an "Ask the Arborist" session from 12 p.m. to 12:30 p.m.  Participants may bring in plant material to ask specific questions about their trees and shrubs. 
Releaf Michigan's Homeowner Educational Workshops are made possible thanks to funding from the Michigan DNR Urban and Community Forestry Program
