Trim trimming workshop planned in Bedford

Indiana Department of Natural Resources urban forestry coordinator Carrie Tauscher will conduct a free workshop on tree trimming and pruning from 6 to 8 p.m. March 6 at the Wilson Park shelter house in Bedford.

Tauscher will discuss reasons to prune and trim trees and how they should properly be trimmed. She also will talk about the reasons why trees should never be topped as is so often done. Topping trees typically leads to tree decay, decline in the tree’s health and broken limbs.

She also plans to talk about the advantages of planting the right tree in the right place and to begin careful pruning early in the tree’s life to ensure it stays healthy.
