Leah Michaelsen
We'll have it available in the recording afterward.
Christopher Horan
the video was really choppy for me as well
Lynne Miller
Have a pruning partner also provides a different perspective before you make the cut.
Linda Benedetti
I want to make sure I understand. I thought I heard you say that you can prune trees anytime of the year

If the video is choppy...hopefully the audio comes through ok! The full video will be available after the workshop.

Tek, there's lots of information about permits to remove trees in Tacoma on this website: https://www.cityoftacoma.org/cms/one.aspx?pageId=11657#:~:text=The%20City%20of%20Tacoma%20generally,by%20Tacoma%20Municipal%20Code%2013.11.But generally, there are no permits required to prune or remove a tree on private property. To remove a tree in the public right-of-way does require a permit.
Veronica Port
Is it okay to remove some dying leaves or just let them fall on their own. I just planted a magnolia butterfly that has a few dying leaves.

great info, John. This was very informative and helpful tips. I learned something new about using the undercut to release pressure before cutting thicker branches.
