The OSU Miami County Master Gardener program is offering a six week pruning class every Wednesday from 1-3 pm starting February 22, 2017. Class topics will include tree biology and how it relates to pruning, pruning equipment and care, techniques and pruning for specific landscapes. Students are asked to bring their pruning shears to the February 22nd class to learn how to properly sharpen them. The class includes in-class instruction and on-site pruning of shrubs and small trees using a variety of pruning equipment. The class will be taught by Miami county Master Gardener Volunteers, including an ISA Certified Arborist.
The classes will meet at the Ohio State Extension office, located on the ground floor of the Miami County Courthouse, 201 W. Main Street, Troy. The cost of the class is $40 for the public and $30 for out-of-county Master Gardener volunteers. Registration can be completed by visiting or calling the Miami County Extension office or mailing a check payable to OSU Extension to the address listed above. Registration is limited and the class fills quickly. The deadline to register is February 15th.
