Pruning Workshop provided excellent information

Thursday night's hands-on pruning workshop provided attendees with good information on basic pruning practices.  Janesville City Forester, Ethan Lee, demonstrated proper practices and attendees were given the opportunity to apply what they had learned to three young trees in Traxler Park.

This was an approved continuing education program.  Each attendee earned 1 continuing education unit (CEU) for each hour of participation.
