Summer Tree Pruning

City Arborist Kevin McFarland and Poulsbo Tree Board members. Join this remarkable team to learn about what summer pruning can do for your trees.  Late summer is a great time to prune fruit trees as well as certain ornamental trees including dogwoods, magnolias, maples, and other flowering trees. If you have always wanted to learn how to keep your trees from sending up so many suckers and waterspouts, this is the class for you. We will meet outside, rain or shine. Site to be determined (in Poulsbo). Class is free, but fills quickly, so don’t wait to register.
