Mal-pruning will be shown and defined (tree topping, lion’s tailing, over-thinning), as will crown restoration. Some specific trees will be covered-magnolia trees, ornamental crabapple, cherry and purple-leafed plum trees.
Classes held in partnership with PlantAmnesty.

Classes held weekly on Thursdays, January 21 – February 25, and delivered virtually using Zoom.
UW Botanic Gardens does not allow re-selling of tickets, and will never post the link to the class on Facebook. If you see either of these activities, do not engage, it is a scam.
