[ARCHIVED] Pruning for Beginners

Heartland Tree Alliance (HTA) is offering a FREE 2-hour course on basic tree pruning skills for shade and ornamental trees on Oct. 17 at Stocksdale Park. Participants will learn through instruction and demonstration about proper pruning tools, basic tree biology, types of pruning cuts, and how to make a proper cut. Fruit trees will NOT be discussed.  

Did you know...

  •  that tree limbs overhanging a sidewalk need to allow for 8 feet of clearance? (City Code Sec. 25-2)
  • that tree limbs overhanging the street need to provide 12 feet of clearance?  (City Code Sec. 25-2)

This is a great opportunity to learn how to correctly trim your trees and to identify which tree branches should be trimmed to ensure appropriate clearance over sidewalks and streets. 

Space in the pruning class is limited! Register online»
