West Virginia State University Extension Service to Host Workshops on Tree Pruning March 26 and 29
Workshop will blend virtual instruction with hands-on, in-person demonstrations
 
INSTITUTE, W.Va. – West Virginia State University (WVSU) Extension Service will host hands-on training in proper tree pruning techniques Friday, March 26, and Monday, March 29, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on the WVSU campus in Institute, as part of a hybrid workshop that includes a virtual presentation covering basic biology concepts relating to pruning cuts and methods.

“This introductory course in tree pruning is appropriate for all skill levels, from the homeowner to the city worker to the expert gardener,” said WVSU Extension Agent Liz Moss. “We will cover tree biology and structure related to pruning, why we make the cuts we do, and the techniques and tools to use for proper cutting.”

Interested participants should visit wvstateu.edu/ANR and watch the Tree Pruning for Beginners pre-recorded video ahead of the hands-on training. From there, complete the short knowledge assessment and register for the onsite portion of the workshop.

The onsite sessions will take place at WVSU’s Curtis Complex, Parking Lot R, Building No. 27 on the Campus Map. Each session is limited to 10 participants.

Proper social distancing measures will be followed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and face coverings are required.
