Clients and homeowners expect healthy, aesthetically-appealing trees. Different size trees require different pruning techniques and management options. Young replacement trees require a lot of work and have specific pruning practices to ensure they grow to their full potential. Mature trees require different pruning techniques and management to ensure a good quality shade tree.

Join us for a full day, hands-on workshop at the University of Minnesota Duluth Campus. This workshop focuses on developmental pruning techniques and management options of small trees (<12 DBH), medium trees (12 to 24 DBH), and large trees (>24 DBH, established canopy). The workshop will also include species factors in management choices, managing client/homeowner expectations, identifying and managing structural defects, and comparing work techniques to accomplish pruning.

You will gain invaluable advice and experience on how to make proper pruning cuts on trees of various sizes. This workshop is designed for professionals with little or no pruning experience to those with advanced pruning skills. If you participated in the workshop last year, come back and further develop your skills.

Please bring your favorite pruning gear. Pruning shears and hand saws will be supplied for use during the workshop if necessary.
