Tree Pruning Workshop!

January 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Winter is a great time to prune trees so we welcome you to join local arborist and PVAS Master Naturalist Shawn Walker at a pruning workshop, sponsored by the Shepherdstown Community Club.

There is no cost for this workshop. There will be an indoor morning session at the War Memorial Building focused on tree pruning essentials, with an emphasis on structure and health. Then after lunch we will put our skills to work on small trees in Morgan’s Grove Park. Please dress appropriately for working outdoors. While tools and protective gear will be available feel free to bring your own. And please provide your own lunch and water. All skill levels are welcome.

ISA Continuing Education Units will be available. Shawn will provide the majority of the tools needed, however please wear sturdy closed-toes shoes, work gloves, eye protection and any pruning tools you may have.

Dress for the weather and bring along plenty of drinking water. The registration is limited to 15 participants so please register early at http://www.potomacaudubon.org/event-2763589
