Tree pruning workshop planned Whether you are a certified professional arborist or landscaper or a homeowner who loves trees, pruning trees can sometimes be a daunting task.
Spring is the optimal time to prune many trees, so it is also the perfect time for a tree pruning workshop to be held on Tuesday, March 18 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Corps of Discovery Welcome Center, three miles south of Yankton at the Highway 81 scenic overlook in Cedar County, NE.
District Extension Forester Steve Rasmussen of Wayne, NE, will conduct the free meeting. Part of the time will be spent discussing proper pruning tools and techniques. The other half of the program will be held outdoors around the center where Rasmussen will demonstrate proper pruning techniques on a variety of trees. No pre-registration is required.
