As part of the Green Industry Continuing Education Series, University of Nevada, Reno Extension is offering “Advanced Pruning Concepts” noon-1 p.m., Oct. 14, at the Extension office at 4955 Energy Way in Reno both in-person and via Zoom.

“The Green Industry Continuing Education Series is a great way to maintain professional certifications conveniently during your lunch hour,” Chad Morris, Extension Commercial Horticulture Program coordinator, said. “Next month’s presenter has extensive knowledge of proper pruning practices and will explore the topic during the one-hour session.”

The class, taught by Certified Arborist Leslie Lyles, will outline pruning concepts and strategies that cover various aspects of professional tree maintenance, ranging from growth forms to specialty pruning practices. The class offers International Society of Arboriculture Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
