Trees and Shrub Pruning Program

Wednesday, October 12, 7 pm, MPTC, Room B124
Have you ever stood in your yard and wondered if the tree or shrub you’re looking at should be pruned now or in the winter or spring? Should you cut it back all the way or just certain branches? Or do you have a lopsided shrub? Whatever your question might be, Eamonn can help you learn what to do and when. This informative presentation includes pictures, samples of right and wrong pruning techniques and their results. The presenter, Eamonn Lenaghan, is the municipal arborist for the city of Grand Chute.
