COMMUNITY FORESTRY: TREE PRUNING WORKSHOP
DATE: THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2020 – 6:00PM TO 8:00PM
Winter is the best time to prune trees due to infectious agents like fungus, bacteria, and insects are less likely to infect a fresh pruning wound. To help tree owners understand the reasons, how to prune their trees, and when they need to hire a professional, the Missouri Department of Conservation is offering a series of tree pruning workshops.
