    I am looking to try and find easy to understand material or something on line that offers more education on pruning. Anybody else done this or know of anything out there. I am trying to educate my employees a bit more to make them more valuable to us. The local colleges do not have anything right now that they offer so that is not an option.

    anything... web sites, on-line classes maybe, a book that has helped you, anything. I figured if ANYONE would know of something it would be the folks on here.

    Thank you in advance,

    Jeff

    Those are really good for trees, I will keep them. I am mainly trying to find some things on general shrubs, plants, flowers (perennials mainly) that type of thing. Thank you for what you sent though, I will use it.

    I am state certified in Tennessee and the Ag agents have handouts and do some training for free. Check with your states Agricultural Office in your city. Also there is a web site for literature in spanish.
