This is a 'learn-by-doing' workshop. The goal is for participants to feel comfortable either pruning their own trees and shrubs or overseeing/directing someone else doing the work.

You will learn:

  • How to choose the right tools for the job
  • When to prune - and why
  • How to cut both small and large branches
  • What NOT to do
  • How to stay safe!

Participants will meet at the Penn State Extension-Mercer County Office located at 463 N. Perry Highway, Mercer, PA from 1:00 pm-2:00 pm. The 'walkabout' will be at a nearby location from 2:15 pm-4:00 pm.

This is an outdoor class, so dress for the weather. We will meet rain or shine!!!

Bring your pruning tools & questions. If we don't know the answer, we'll find out!!

Please note: We will not cover fruit trees
