Northeast MN Pruning Workshop

April 28, 2022
7:00 AM – 3:00 PM​
University of Minnesota Duluth

Registration for this event has closed. 


After another long winter, the Minnesota Society of Arboriculture is pleased to bring the Northeast Pruning Workshop back to the University of Minnesota Duluth Campus on April 28th, 2022.

This year we are focusing on acknowledging the expertise in our industry combined with the best science and research to guide us throughout the pruning process. We’ll explore decision making while pruning newly planted trees to thoughtful approaches to mature trees that we seek to preserve for generations to come.

During this full-day workshop, you’ll work on unique problem solving exercises in the classroom and team up to work through hands-on challenges in the landscape. Ground level and at-height maintenance opportunities will be presented and discussed.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own non-motorized pruning equipment and gear. All life support equipment must pass instructor safety inspections prior to use.
