Thursday, April 5, 7:00 pm – Pruning Outdoor Trees and Shrubs


Pruning is a practice that is periodically required on all woody landscape plants and a yearly pruning program helps to maintain the health, beauty and safety of plantings. Jack Kelly of Bartlett Tree Experts will discuss those techniques that are safe and reasonable for the home gardener to do as well as discussing when it’s time to call in an arborist for consultation and management of large or difficult specimens. The lecture, entitled Pruning Outdoor Trees and Shrubs, will take place at the Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s headquarters at Elm Bank in Wellesley on Thursday, April 5 beginning at 7 pm. The event is free but registration is recommended at www.masshort.org.
