Woodstock Pruning Workshop

Woodstock Park, SE 47th Ave. & SE Harold St.

Saturday, February 15 2014, 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM


RSVP needed! Woodstock’s Tree Team & Urban Forestry are hosting a pruning workshop to teach why and how to prune young street trees.


Event Types > Volunteer Opportunities/Fundraisers


Meet us under the pavilion in the SE corner of the park!  We will have a short pruning demonstration, followed by breaking up into small groups. Each group will prune trees for structure and clearance under the guidance of an arborist. This will be a great hands-on experience for both experienced pruners and newcomers while setting up our young street trees for future success.  


RSVP to Rick at & please specify whether you are a Neighborhood Tree Steward and/or how experienced you are with tree pruning.  We will pair two inexperienced pruners with someone who has experience.  For questions, contact Rick or Natasha at


Tools, gloves, and snacks will be provided. Look forward to seeing you there!
