Cornell Cooperative Extension of Onondaga County is holding educational hands-on workshops for residents of the county on tree maintenance. By learning to identify and perform structural and hazard pruning on young trees, homeowners can guide their trees to a strong and healthy future. Volunteers practice their skills on trees in different municipalities throughout the county to support beautifying our neighborhoods.

Our first training sessions will be on April 24th and May 2nd 6pm-8pm at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Classroom in the Atrium Building at 100 S Salina St. Following the initial training sessions, weekly pruning projects and educational workshops continue through the season. Workshops this year include a Tree ID tour at Oakwood Cemetery, touring a tree nursery, learning about the American Chestnut project at ESF, and many more!
