TK202 Advanced Tree Pruning for Certification teaches basic feet-on-the ground pruning techniques for young trees to help them develop strong and healthy branching structure. You will learn various types of pruning, how trees respond to pruning, and making proper cuts. This class includes an outdoor hands-on tree pruning demonstration – so please dress accordingly!

TK202 Advanced Tree Pruning for Certification is required to become a Certified TreeKeepers Pruning Expert. Certification requirements also include helping at two tree pruning events held by TreeKeepers nonprofit partners.

Through a combination of classroom learning and field experiences, TreeKeepers-in-Training learn best management practices associated with tree care. Once certified, TreeKeepers can receive special help from TK partners with trees in their own community.
