Description of the Event:

 It's time to get trees and shrubs ready for the cold!

Learn from our Ford House experts about the three main forms of mal-pruning: tree topping, inappropriate shearing of trees and shrubs, and over thinning.

We compare and contrast mal-pruning with bona fide examples of pruning art: pollarding, cloud pruning, topiary, pleaching, and coppicing. 

Tickets are sold in advance only. Dress for the weather as we will go outdoors.

Education Credit Hours: Please check with your extension agent.
