Practice correct pruning techniques and learn which plants to prune now and, more important, which to prune later. Known as dormant pruning, thoughtful removal of branches in winter is easy and encourages proper spring growth.
Complete a short online component at your convenience before the in-person session. In-person class time will be spent in the field with an expert, who will demonstrate what to prune and how to do it. Then put on your gloves, grab some pruners, and try it yourself.
COVID-19 Precautions: Program participants must abide by the Arboretum’s safety guidelines.
How Online Learning Works:
- When you enroll in the course, you will be emailed instructions for accessing Treelearning, the Arboretum’s online learning portal. Unless otherwise noted, you will have access to the course for 60 days from the course start date.
- Log into treelearning.mortonarb.org to complete self-paced activities, such as e-learning modules, reading material, short videos, interactive activities, and quizzes to check your understanding.
- The self-paced activities do not need to be completed in one sitting, and your instructor will not be online with you.
- Your class includes a live session with your instructor. This session will take place at The Morton Arboretum.
