1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


On Wednesday, February, 10, 2021 N.C. Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center will present a workshop for both professionals and homeowners who want to learn how to properly prune their ornamental trees and shrubs.

The workshop will cover when, why, and how to prune:

  • tree assessment,
  • proper cuts,
  • developing good branching habits,
  • looking for defects,
  • correcting problems,
  • and how much to prune.

Working on real trees in the field will help participants improve this important skill.  We will host a [1] lecture followed by an in-person, hands-on portion to the class, where participants will have an opportunity to prune a Crape Myrtle tree on the premises, with staff available to assist you every step of the way!

We have a limited number of pruning saws available for use, so please bring your own if possible.

Join us on February, 10, 2021 from 1:00 to 2:30 p. m. Register online for this free workshop at
