Residential Tree Pruning Workshop

Don Hodel, Environmental Horticulturist,
University of California Cooperative Extension, LA County

Sat., Jan. 3, 2015, 9 a.m. Registration begins Wednesday, December 3, 2014.

Registration is required. Please register via e-mail at:botanicgarden@csun.edu
Registration for this class begins December 3, 2014.

As major focal points of a garden planting, trees provide the setting and define the character of the home landscape, and a well-pruned tree enhances the curb appeal of a residence. While many homeowners leave tree work to the professional landscape maintenance crews, there are many small pruning tasks that can be performed by the home gardener. Corrective pruning is especially beneficial for young trees and shrubs, and regular pruning maintains a more desirable shape, reducing the need for extreme pruning later on.

On Saturday, January 3, 2015, from 9-11, Don Hodel will speak on the basics (why, when, how) of tree pruning, with special emphasis on pruning deciduous fruit trees. Don is an Environmental Horticulturist with the UC Davis Cooperative Extension, Los Angeles County and has authored numerous articles and books on ferns, trees, and palms. He is a favorite speaker at local fern, palm, and horticultural groups.
