             Pruning Options for Mature,
             Damaged, or Declining Trees

: Tuesday, October 15th, 7-9 pm

Center for Urban Horticulture
            3501 NE 41st St.,
Seattle, WA 98105

This event is FREE to ALL PlantAmnesty Members. If you have a friend who would be interested in becoming a member, bring them along too!

As trees age, or are significantly damaged from storms, there are many options available to maintain and care for them. Large mature trees in the landscape provide invaluable benefits that cannot be easily or quickly replaced, and there are many alternatives to reduce or mitigate risk other than removal. Learn about 'retrenchment pruning' versus the malpractice of topping, as well as other choices such as cabling, bracing, and creating snags.

This is a pot luck event, so please bring a dish to share or a donation for food and libations.
