Tree Pruning for Beginners

tree pruning

This course will train participants on proper shade and ornamental tree pruning. It stands as a prerequisite for volunteers that would like to participate in tree pruning workdays throughout the metro or for anyone looking to learn more about proper pruning techniques. Fruit tree pruning will not be discussed.

Heartland Tree Alliance is offering a 2-hour course on basic tree pruning skills for shade and ornamental trees. Participants will learn through hands-on training and instruction about proper pruning tools, basic tree biology, types of pruning cuts, and how to make a proper cut. Space is limited to keep the teacher to student ratio low. All participants will receive a “How to Prune Trees” booklet from the US Forest Service to take home. All tools for the course are provided.
