The dormant season is one of the best times to prune for plant structure. The foliage has fallen, revealing the limbs and form of the plant.
In this workshop, you will learn structural pruning techniques for specimen shrubs, small ornamental trees, and young trees. Learn to maintain the plant’s natural character and create a strong branch structure, eliminating future problems.
Get started at home with self-paced online materials, which will cover key principles, techniques, and vocabulary with interactive e-learning modules and videos. Then get hands-on practice in the field with a trained horticulturist on the grounds of The Morton Arboretum.
This program includes a self-paced component and an in-person session at the Arboretum.
Instructor: Eric Schroeder, horticulturist, The Morton Arboretum
