On February 10, 2021, N.C. Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center will present a workshop for both professionals and homeowners who want to learn how to properly prune their ornamental trees and shrubs. 

The workshop will cover when, why, and how to prune; tree assessment, proper cuts, developing good branching habits, looking for defects, correcting problems, and how much to prune. Working on real trees in the field will help participants improve this important skill. We will host a lecture followed by an in-person, hands-on portion to the class, where participants will have an opportunity to prune a Crape Myrtle tree on the premises, with staff available to assist you every step of the way! We have a limited number of pruning saws available for use, so please bring your own if possible.

Join us on February 10 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Register online for this free workshop at https://pruningornamentaltreesandshrubs.eventbrite.com.
