Pruning Basics for Shrubs & Small Trees

Pruning basics for shrubs and small trees to improve vigor and structural strength. The class will cover pruning basics, tools to use and timing. We will also discuss healthy pruning techniques and methods to maintain structural strength. Pruning is not a one-time fix all. It is an ongoing process continuing as plants grow and develop. Questions are encouraged and participants may bring pictures of their problem plants for advice.
