Pruning Workshop

Date and Time:

UVM Horticulture Farm, 65 Green Mountain Drive, South Burlington, VT

** UPDATE** this workshop is FULL.  Based on popular demand, we will be coordinating a repeat workshop for a Saturday later in the summer.  The date for that workshop will be announced soon.  If you are interested, please follow the registration link below and fill out the information to be put on the waitlist.  We will offer the repeat workshop to all waitlisted participants before opening it up to the public.



Proper pruning is important to ensure the long-term structural integrity of your trees.  Properly pruned trees are not only more aesthetically pleasing but stronger.  Pruning young trees can significantly reduce the likelihood of limb or structural trunk failure as the tree matures.  Join us for a FREE workshop that will cover different types of pruning, proper pruning techniques, and how to determine when and what tool will meet your pruning needs.  

This workshop will be led by VJ Comai, Arborist Representative with The Bartlett Tree Expert Company and longtime friend of the VT Urban & Community Forestry Program and Vermont's trees. 

The workshop will take place on Saturday, July 9th from 10am - 12pm at the UVM Horticulture Farm in South Burlington.  

This workshop is free but space is limited to 20 participants.  Register by clicking here.

This is a hands-on workshop that will take place outdoors.  Please dress for the weather and bring your own bypass pruners (let us know if you don't have a pair to bring).

This workshop is co-sponsored by the VT Urban & Community Forestry Program and Branch Out Burlington, Burlington's citizen tree stewardship group.
