These classes offered by Penn State Extension focus on pruning small trees and shrubs, including training young shade trees. These classes are geared toward landscape professionals who care for a variety of plants in the landscapes they manage. The session starts in the classroom with an introduction to plant structure and growth as it relates to pruning, as well as proper use of tools. Then participants head outdoors for hands-on pruning experience.
