Trees 101 hosts Tree Nurturing and Pruning Workshop

Shawn of Trees 101 (along with his lovely partner in pruning, Linda) hosted a great bunch of tree lovers during the first annual Potomac Valley Audubon Society Tree Nurturing Workshop this past Sunday. We spent almost three hours at Morgan’s Grove Park in Shepherdstown (Jefferson County, West Virginia) discussing the fundamentals of pruning for health and structure, and the essential aspects of ‘cultural care’ of trees. It was cold for late March but we warmed things up by putting our knowledge into practice! We didn’t hold back as we tackled DOMINANCE, CO-DOMINANCE and SUBORDINATION. Yes!
Here is a link to the US Forest Service’s guide to pruning. I have made a customized handout as well. Email me if you want a copy! (
