Pruning is one of the least-understood gardening tasks, yet is critical for a healthy and attractive landscape. Knowing when to prune is just as important as knowing how to prune. When done correctly, pruning can rejuvenate overgrown trees and shrubs, increase plant vigor, and improve appearance. Proper formative pruning also gets young trees and shrubs off to a good start, resulting in healthier and more beautiful assets in the landscape. This class will cover pruning tools and techniques for trees and shrubs.
