March 24 - Pruning Landscapes After Winter - The old idea that anyone with a chain saw or a pruning saw can be a landscape pruner is far from the truth.  More trees are killed or ruined each year from improper pruning than by pests.  Remember that pruning is the removal or reduction of certain plant parts that are not required, that are no longer effective, or that are of no use to the plant.  It is done to supply additional energy for the development of flowers, fruits, and limbs that remain on the plant.  Pruning, which has several definitions, essentially involves removing plant parts to improve the health, landscape effect, or value of the plant.  Once the objectives are determined and a few basic principles understood, pruning primarily is a matter of common knowledge.  Come out and join Hope in this very educational class.
