Trees SC and the City of Aiken will host a Tree and Utility Line Pruning Workshop on June 25th in Aiken from 2:00-5: 00 pm at the Municipal Building Conference Center (215 The Alley, Aiken, SC 29801). The program is FREE to attend but registration is required.

The workshop addresses the concerns among community members regarding utility line pruning currently underway within city limits. Presentations will increase awareness on the importance of proper pruning around utility lines, tree pruning basics, and the art and science around utility line pruning.

In an effort to educate citizens of South Carolina about urban forestry issues, including proper planting, pruning, and tree maintenance techniques, Trees SC created the Canopy Sessions. While these sessions are open to the public, the primary audience are those outside of the traditional urban forestry profession, including but not limited to garden clubs, homeowner associations, non-profit organizations, Councilmembers, Mayors and government officials.
