Green Tacoma Day activity
Jeff Stark - Im a barber in North Seattle and trying to figure out how to be a barber (pruning) my areas around my house.
Definitely not a master gardener, but I have a couple of maple trees that I need to thin out.
Christopher Horan - I have a 112 year old house in Old Town Tacoma....never really cared for an established yard before. Lots of trees and shrubs that are overgrown and I don't know how or when to cut them back.
Rhonda.. moving from Chicago back to Port Townsend to take stewardship of 3 acres.
Welcome everyone! If you have a question, feel free to put it here in the chat, or pop it into the Q&A feature.
Will the presentation be available after this webinar for us to review again?
I prune for aesthetics around the house...branches are growing into the eaves of my house!
Answering a question about how to register for the fruit tree workshop. It is on the Sustainability website Facebook page and will soon be live on the EnviroHouse website workshop page. I will also post it on the EnviroNews listserv. You can email me at email@example.com for more information. Janda
Here's a link to register for the November 4 workshop on Pruning and Care of Fruit Trees:
The video may look choppy...(no pun intended) apologies!
We'll have it available in the recording afterward.
the video was really choppy for me as well
Have a pruning partner also provides a different perspective before you make the cut.
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.
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.
Thank you all - great class!
