Art or Atrocity?

October 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Zoom WA United States
$15 – $20 58 spaces left

This class covers the three main forms of mal-pruning: tree topping, inappropriate shearing of trees and shrubs, and over thinning. We compare and contrast mal-pruning with bona fide examples of pruning art: pollarding, cloud pruning, topiary, pleaching, and coppicing. This class ends on a humorous note with photos of the Good, the Bad, and the Bizarre. Taught by Christina Pfeiffer
