Description

This is the primary class of the series Master Pruner courses. It covers basic pruning of ornamental trees and shrubs as well as creative solutions to the overgrown or over-planted garden. The types of pruning cuts are shown and discussed. The concept of the 'pruning budget' is introduced. Plants are divided into three categories according to their natural habits and pruning techniques given for each. Before and after slides of pruning and diagrams will be used to illustrate pruning for size reduction and pruning for definition (thinning). And students will gain insight into the process of yard renovation, where pruning is but one tool in restoring a garden.

This lecture series is designed for those who work in landscape maintenance. Classes last two hours and are held on Tuesdays. Each lecture provides information on tools and techniques for quality pruning with better long-term results and customer satisfaction.

Classes held in partnership with PlantAmnesty.
