glovesOnce again it's the time of year that people trim their trees. They put on lights, ornaments and maybe even some tinsel.

This year the Jackson County Conservation is hosting a tree pruning workshop to teach people how to prune their live trees. The event will take place on December 14, 2013, at 1 p.m. at the Hurstville Interpretive Center.

The workshop can be an informative break from decorating the evergreen this holiday season. A short presentation will include tips of how to properly prune a tree and what time of year is best. There will also be time for hands on practice. Attendees can give pruning a try on the burr oak trees around the Hurstville Center.

Jackson County Conservation recommends bringing a pair of pruners and gloves if you have them.
