Tree Pruning Tips

February 5 | 10:15 - 11:15 AM

Many say the worst and best thing for a tree in an urban environment is pruning. The worst is derived from improper pruning practices. Topped trees to stubbed branches cause the tree to grow weak branches and create a potential avenue for insect and disease issues. Proper pruning allows good structural growth, protection from wind and reduces the risk of tree failure. With this class, explore simple pruning tips you can implement this winter to lengthen the life your tree. Show some love by making the right cut! Presenter: Kelly Allsup, University of Illinois Extension
