Andrea Schnapp, an arborist and master gardener, will give a program on pruning.  She will cover proper techniques for woody ornamentals and trees.  Use and care of tools will also be discussed.  Participants will learn what months are best for pruning particular plants.  Landscape plants are valuable investments and their care will keep them happy and looking their best.
