Free Tree Pruning Workshop

Saturday July 9th, 2016
10am – 12pm
UVM Horticulture Farm, 65 Green Mountain Drive, South Burlington, VT.
Proper pruning is important to ensure the long-term structural integrity of your trees.  Properly pruned trees are not only more aesthetically pleasing, but stronger as well.  Pruning young trees can significantly reduce the likelihood of limb or structural trunk failure as the tree matures. Join us for a FREE workshop that will cover different types of pruning, proper pruning techniques, and how to determine when and what tool will meet your pruning needs.

This workshop will be led by VJ Comai, Arborist Representative with The Bartlett Tree Expert Company and lifelong steward of Vermont’s trees.

This workshop is free but space is limited to 20 participants.  Register by visiting

This is a hands-on workshop that will take place outdoors.  Please dress for the weather and bring your own bypass pruners (let us know if you don’t have a pair to bring).

This workshop is co-sponsored by the VT Urban & Community Forestry Program and Branch Out Burlington, Burlington’s citizen tree stewardship group.
