Saturday, January 26, 9:00 am – 12:00 noon – Pruning in Winter


The Arnold Arboretum will hold a class on Pruning in Winter in the Hunnewell Building, 125 Arborway, on Saturday, January 26 from 9 – noon. Jen Kettell, an ISA-certified arborist, will explain the reasons for pruning and what to consider when pruning dormant trees, shrubs, and vines. She will demonstrate techniques, give guidelines for determining which plants benefit from winter pruning, and explain how plants heal from pruning wounds.

Note: this workshop teaches ornamental pruning techniques; it does not provide information on pruning for fruit production. The fee is $48 ($35 for Arnold Arboretum members) and you may register by emailing pam_thompson@harvard.edu.  Image from www.danwilt.com.
