Pruning 101 water-smart workshop Aug. 24 in Queen Creek

Trees and shrubs are the most important living elements of your landscape.  Join an arborist certified by the International Society of Arboriculture for an introductory presentation to learn the basics of pruning to keep your investments healthy, functional and looking great.

Pruning 101 water-smart workshop is 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, Aug. 24 at Historic Town Hall, 22350 S. Ellsworth Road in Queen Creek.
