It is time to prune trees! The Smithfield City Tree Committee’s 2013 annual pruning demonstrations can give you the professional tips you need to properly care for your trees. There will be two outdoor workshops, the first specifically for pruning trees for fruit production, the second dealing with general tree health care and pruning. This is an excellent opportunity to learn techniques and have your tree questions answered by experienced professionals. Do come dressed warmly!
Saturday, March 9, 10 AM – noon.

Also, watch for our booth at Health Days in May. We will have a drawing to give away large potted trees ready for planting in your landscape. Trees given away last year were a Tulip tree, a Highland Park bigtooth maple, and a Prairie Fire crabapple. We also offer free materials on tree selection, recommended varieties for our area, how to use trees to reduce utility bills, and instructions on proper planting, watering and pruning.
