ALBION — Local homeowners, businesses, municipalities and others are invited to learn proper techniques for trimming trees at an upcoming tree pruning workshop. Topics include tools, pruning basics, and effects of topping trees.
Purdue Extension will host the workshop twice at the Noble County Extension office on Thursday, Sept. 24, with programs at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Each session is expected to last about 1½ hours.
John Woodmansee, Whitley County Extension Educator, will teach one of his favorite topics. If weather permits, an outdoor, hands-on demonstration will be part of the training, so dress appropriately.
