Learn proper pruning techniques Saturday

A certified arborist will demonstrate tree pruning from 10- 11 a.m. Feb. 10 at the library, 26 North Road.

Andrew Hunter, a member of the town’s tree committee, will begin with a brief overview in the meeting hall followed by a demonstration of pruning techniques on the katsura tree on the library grounds. Hunter, a graduate of Tulane University who studied at the English Gardening School in Chelsea, U.K., will explain when trees need pruning and why it’s important to their health.

A licensed arborist for 18 years, Hunter has worked in landscape design and construction. This free program is sponsored by the tree committee. Guests should dress for the weather.
