April EcoQuest: Imprudent Pruning


Event Description

Join the April EcoQuest: Imprudent Pruning!

Find and map as many examples of improper pruning as possible, including trees and shrubs, palms, cactus and agaves. Be sure to use #imprudentpruning in the notes of your observation! This will help us sort through the observations on iNaturalist.

This month we’re looking at the top 5 NOT wanted list for pruning, including topping, lion tailing, shrub shapes, puny palms, and cactus and succulent chop. When pruning practices and methods aren’t carefully considered and executed, it can damage a plant for the rest of its life.
