Although trees often perform quite well without intervention, pruning is performed by arborists to address safety issues and to improve structure, health, and appearance. Join the Mt. Cuba Arboriculture Team for a discussion of pruning equipment and a demonstration of professional pruning techniques. Students are encouraged to share their own questions about pruning in advance. Class will be held outside; please dress for the weather.
This program has been canceled as of May 26, 2023.
