Balto TreeKeepers Young Tree Pruning 3

Learn by doing! Work in small groups with people who enjoy being outdoors. Learn to perform minor pruning cuts that will help your tree develop healthy branch structure. (Participation may qualify towards Baltimore TreeKeepers Tree Pruning certification – www.baltimoretreetrust.org for details on the Baltimore TreeKeepers program.)

On Saturday, February 4th, 10 a.m., we will be pruning young trees growing in the N. Broadway median, in east Baltimore City. We will meet at N. Broadway and Eager St. and work north. Street parking is available.. This is Balto TreeKeepers’ second phase of N. Broadway Tree Pruning. Our goal this winter is to carefully prune trees in the median from Eager St to E North Ave!

All pruning will be done with your feet-on-the-ground using hand tools. Due to the location of this activity, it may not be appropriate for young children. Rain date is Sunday, Feb 5th, 1–3pm.

Gloves, tools, and safety vests will be available for use but you may bring your own sharp, clean pruners and saws. City Forestry will pickup up the cuttings that we accumulate.

This workshop is part of the Baltimore TreeKeepers program – a series of free classes open to the public teaching tree stewardship and best urban forestry management practices. Certification as a Tree Planting Leader and a Tree Pruning Expert is available to those who complete the program requirements.
