Elevate Your Skills!

Led by NH certified arborist and a board-certified master arborist, Lee Gilman, this hands-on training will guide participants through:

  • how to grade the structure and form of trees and shrubs
  • how to prioritize the most beneficial and efficient pruning opportunities
  • how to make proper pruning cuts with consideration of the short and long-term effects on plant health

This session provides a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on experience, with guidance from arborists and UNH Extension pruning mentors on the UNH Durham campus. We’ll spend one hour indoors discussing pruning concepts and standards, then we’ll move outdoors for hands-on learning and demonstration, working within the ANSI A300 Part 1 standards.

The location for the training will be on the UNH Campus in Durham and will be sent to registrants when we get closer to the event.

Participants should bring their own pruning equipment, including hand pruners, loppers, and pruning saws. A limited number of loaner tools will be available. The majority of this session will be held outdoors. Please dress for the weather and bring water.

Cost: $50
