Description

The Sherburne Soil & Water Conservation District and the cities of Becker, Big Lake, Clear Lake, Elk River, Princeton, and Zimmerman are partnering with the University of Minnesota Forest Resources Department on the Citizen Pruners pilot program. Citizen Pruners are trained in tree identification, biology, and pruning techniques. Tree pruning requires not only an understanding of how to prune but also an understanding of the tree's biology to prevent the spread of certain diseases. If you enjoy being outdoors, love trees and your community, this is an opportunity for you to get involved in your urban forest. Course material will be taught by University of Minnesota Forest Resources Department staff alongside the Sherburne Soil & Water Conservation District.
