September 2016 Home Pruning

For the first fall meeting, WGC members learned about Home Pruning from Jen Kettell.  Jen is a Massachusetts Certified Horticulturist and an ISA Certified Arborist.  For five years she served on the Executive Board of the New England Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture.  


Jen shared her knowledge of pruning equipment, and when and how to prune in the garden, various pruning cuts, and the type of thinning that encourages health and vibrant growth for years to come.
