A tree does not reach its most productive stage of carbon storage for about 10 years.
Practice Your Pruning Skills, Saturday January 14th!
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.
This Saturday Tree Pittsburgh will be leading a Pruning Workshop on the South Side Trail where we’ll cover important lessons such as:
- Evaluating a tree’s natural form and enhancing it through pruning
- Determining the proper cuts using the 4 Ds: Dead, Damaged, Diseased, and Deformed
- 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 this Saturday to sharpen your skills!
