Description of the Event: 

Cost: $40.00 per participant

Pruning is an important cultural practice for maintaining the health, vigor and appearance of woody plants. It involves both art and science – art, in shaping plants to enhance the landscape, and science, in knowing how, when, where and why to prune for maximum benefit.

We are offering this pruning workshop to help you master the science (and a bit of art) of pruning. MSU Extension Sr. Educator, Rebecca Finneran and Dan Davis, Garden Coordinator for our the MSU Ectension Grand Ideas Garden, will lead this hands-on class. We will spend time in the classroom to learn pruning best practices and the best equipment for each job and then move outdoors to apply the learning. Woodland Tree Services, ISA Certified Arborists, will also join us to demonstrate correct (and safe) tree trimming practices. 

Re-certified MSU Extension Master Gardener attendees will earn 4 continuing education hours (to be reported using the VMS project of Community: Beautification).

Register today and gain the knowledge and confidence you will need when you head into your garden this spring to prune.
