Practice your pruning skills with Tree Pittsburgh!

Pruning young trees is one of the most important actions you can
take to help them thrive in the built environment.  Whether in your
backyard, on your front sidewalk, or in your neighborhood park, shaping young
trees through proper pruning practices will help them grow healthy and strong,
and prevent potential problems in the future. 

On March 9, Tree Pittsburgh will be leading a Pruning
Workshop in Squirrel Hill where we’ll cover important lessons such as:

  • Evaluating a
    tree’s natural form and enhancing it through pruning
  • Determining the
    proper cuts using the 3 Ds: Dead, Damaged, and Diseased
  • Making the
    cut:  Removing branches safely while doing the least possible harm to
    the tree

Pruning is an art and a science, and it can often be challenging
at first.  But practice makes perfect!  Join Tree Pittsburgh’s ISA
Certified Arborists to sharpen your skills!

from the ISA

Event Date: 
Saturday, March 9, 2013 - 10:00am to 12:00pm
