The Nannen Arboretum Society will host its first speaker in a yearlong educational series on Wednesday, Feb. 19 at 6 p.m. at the Town Center in Ellicottville.

Jeff Fabian, certified arborist, will present “The Science of Pruning.”

Have you ever stood in your yard, staring at a shrub, wondering where to start? Understanding how a tree or shrub reacts to wounding will help you with your pruning.

Come hear Fabian talk about the science of pruning and how to make the cut in your landscape. Pruning can be intuitive and easy to do when armed with the right tools and knowledge.
