University of Wyoming tree care experts will provide hands-on pruning demonstrations during a free tree care and management workshop Tuesday, April 3, in Lander.

Insect issues and tree selection for the Lander area are also topics during the sessions 1:30-4:30 p.m. at the Lander UW Extension office, 130 Eugene St., said extension educator Chance Marshall.

Marshall said pruning trees and diagnosing problems is important to keeping trees healthy and growing.

“Maybe you are interested in planting trees that will thrive in the Lander area but don’t know what varieties will work,” he said. “Maybe you are fighting blight or insects with adult trees?”

RSVPs are requested by Monday, April 2, by calling the Lander extension office at 307-332-2363 or for more information.
