On a chilly Saturday morning at Northern Virginia Community College’s Annandale campus, three SavATree tree crews gathered for a day of training.
The teams from the Rockville, Maryland branch and Springfield and Sterling, Virginia branches gathered together to gain knowledge of ornamental pruning of boxwoods and other woody shrubs.
The pruning training was led by Peter Deahl, co-founder of The Pruning School and owner of FinePruning.
The groups also trained on a section of steel cabling and tree-safe cabling, which included selection, usage, and different methods of installation.
The day was a fine example of teamwork while learning!
