Winter is a great time to prune trees so we welcome you to join local arborist and PVAS Master Naturalist Shawn Walker at a pruning workshop, sponsored by the Shepherdstown Community Club.

There will be an indoor morning session at the War Memorial Building focused on tree pruning essentials, with an emphasis on structure and health. Then after lunch we will put our skills to work on small trees in Morgan’s Grove Park.

Please dress appropriately for working outdoors. While tools and protective gear will be available feel free to bring your own. And please provide your own lunch and water. All skill levels are welcome. ISA Continuing Education Units will be available.
