Pruning Native Shrubs and Trees


When: 6:30pm-8:00pm, Wednesday, May 5


Expert: Maraea Harris  


Pruning shrubs and small trees can be confounding for homeowners but it doesn't have to be. We will talk about identifying trees and shrubs in your landscape and how best to prune them for health and aesthetics. The techniques we discuss will be applicable throughout your landscape but we will focus on native shrubs and trees that are commonly grown in our area.

Submit your questions on the registration page, and please send photos of the area in question to plantnovanatives@gmail.com.

This videoconference will be recorded and posted to YouTube.

Maraea Harris is the owner of Metro GardenWorks, whose services include gardening, pruning, tree assessment and identification, and invasive plant management.
