Click here to reg­is­ter for this event. Reg­is­tra­tion is required so we know how many peo­ple to expect. Please note that only cer­ti­fied Tree Ten­ders are able to prune trees in the City of Pitts­burgh. You’ll receive an exact meet­ing loca­tion pri­or to the event.

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!
