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.
