Rehoboth Beach and the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Trees will offer a crash course on the art of pruning at 1 p.m. Oct. 23 at Rehoboth Beach City Hall, 229 Rehoboth Ave.

Participants will have a hands-on opportunity to prune plants around City Hall and in nearby parks. Proper pruning techniques will be discussed and demonstrated. Pruning is an excellent skill to learn to protect an investment in landscaping. Proper pruning helps maintain health, develop structure and enhance aesthetics.

Participants should dress appropriately, with long pants, closed-toe shoes, protective eyewear and gloves recommended. There is no charge for this event, but space is limited. Participants must bring their own pruning equipment such as loppers, hand pruners or pruning saws.
