The Milton Public Library and the Parks & Recreation Commission are teaming up to present a Tree Pruning Primer on April 27, 2013 at 10 a.m. at the Tails n Trails Dog Park, 466 Elm Street.
Tree Pruning Primer will be led by David Graham, a local landscape
architect, tree hugger, and ISA Certified Arborist. He will demonstrate
proper techniques for pruning trees, discuss the do’s and don’ts of
tree pruning, and talk about the Tree Climbing Events that Wisconsin
Area Climbing Arborists will participate in before the World Tree
Climbing Championship in Toronto, Canada starting on Saturday, August 3,
2013. After the class, the Parks & Recreation Commission will ask
attendees to assist in planting a few trees at the Tails n Trails Dog
The Tree Pruning Primer is being held to
commemorate Arbor Day, which is locally and nationally recognized as
Friday, April 26, 2013. In 1872, J. Sterling Morton proposed to the
Nebraska Board of Agriculture that a special day be set aside for the
planting of trees. Arbor Day was first observed with the planting of
more than one million trees in Nebraska. Arbor Day is now observed
throughout the nation and the world.
