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!
