Bryant C. Scharenbroch, PhD, Assistant Professor of Soil Science, University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point, Research Fellow of The Morton Arboretum

This webinar is co-sponsored by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System

This workshop will cover when, why and how to prune, assessment, proper cuts, developing good branching habits, looking for defects, correcting problems and how much to prune.

Your clients might ask you for information on proper tree pruning. Correct pruning can determine whether a tree lives 10 years or 100 years. Developing a strong structure while the trees are young will help reduce injury and problems that can occur with the trees as they grow older. This workshop will cover when, why and how to prune, assessment, proper cuts, developing good branching habits, looking for defects, correcting problems and how much to prune.
