 Registration is closed for this event

ZOOM VIRTUAL CLASS - you will receive a link to the class in your email after registering.

Each spring, CCE-Tompkins offers a multi-part training series for individuals who wish to become Citizen Pruner Volunteers AND for members of the general public who just want to know more about trees and how to care for them.  Classes cover pruning of trees and shrubs in a 3 part series- take one or all. There will be a separate registration link for each class. Anyone who is interested in becoming a Citizen Pruner Volunteer for the City is encouraged to take these classes in preparation for volunteering later in the year. 

Classes are offered Monday evenings – April 13, 20 and 27, 6:30-7:30 PM via ZOOM

Register for one or all of the following workshops:

There is a $0-$15 per class self-determined sliding scale fee.  

These classes are usually part of our Citizen Pruner Volunteer Training and free to anyone who wants to become a Citizen Pruner - a group of dedicated volunteers who meet once each week to prune street trees within the City of Ithaca.  This year, because of coronavirus, we are postponing our volunteer meetups. We hope to reinstate this group during the summer.  If you would like to become a Citizen Pruner, please fill out the following application:

Please fill out the application and return to Graham Salvio at gs695@cornell.edu, an electronic file without a signature is fine for now.

About the Citizen Pruner Volunteer Program:

Citizen Pruner Volunteers get LOTS of hands-on pruning practice helping to maintain street trees and shrubs in the City of Ithaca. After training sessions at Cooperative Extension, volunteers work once a week from May to October and are free to come weekly or as time permits. Staff from Extension and the City are always on hand during work sessions to help guide volunteers in making pruning decisions.
