Tree Pruning Workshop

  • Wednesday, March 20, 2019, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Cornell Cooperative Extension and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation are pleased to present a workshop for professionals who care for trees, as well as for anyone who wants to learn proper pruning techniques.

You can determine whether a tree lives 15 years or 150 by the way you prune it (or don’t). Developing a strong structure while the trees are young will help reduce injury and problems that can occur with the trees as they grow older. The workshop will cover when, why and how to prune; assessment, proper cuts, developing good branching habits, looking for defects, correcting problems and how much to prune. Pruning is science, and art. Working on real trees in the field will help participants improve this important skill.
