with Ellyn Shea

Sat, Oct 10, 9:00am--12:30pm

Trees growing wild? Shrubbery getting out of hand? Join Ellyn Shea, International Society of
Arboriculture Certified Arborist, and learn the fundamentals of pruning at this special lecture and workshop.

Ellyn will divulge her secrets of pruning technique, touching on early training of small trees, methods for mature trees and woody shrubs, basic tree biology and growth, and proper use and care of pruning tools. The group will also take a scenic and informative walk through the Garden and examine a containerized rootball.

Ellyn Shea has spent a decade in the green industry, working with Friends of the Urban Forest for eight years, and currently with local consulting arborist Roy Leggitt. A teacher and author, Ellyn has spoken at a wide range of conferences and local venues, and her articles have been published in Tree Care Industry and ISA journals.
