NRD Tree Pruning Workshop March 28th

NRD Tree Pruning Workshop March 28th


The North Platte Natural Resources District and Nebraska Forest Service are
partnering to host a tree pruning workshop to demonstrate the correct techniques for
pruning young trees. The workshop will be held Tuesday, March 28th, from 9 a.m. to
12 p.m. at the North Platte NRD office, located at 100547 Airport Road in
Scottsbluff. The workshop is free of charge and open to everyone.

The workshop will also demonstrate proper pruning tools, pruning techniques, and
provide information on the NRD tree programs. Doak Nickerson, Northwest District
Forester for the Nebraska Forest Service, will be the presenter.
It is important to start pruning trees within the first 10 years of their life and keep up
with a regular routine. If the pruning is done while they are young, it will be easier and
less dangerous to the tree.

The March 28th workshop will be conducted mostly outside and will be held rain or
shine, so participants are reminded to dress accordingly. A workshop brochure that also
contains tips for pruning young trees is available on the NRD website at
