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. 

During this Pruning Workshop we will 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!
