    Go to your local bookstore or library. The gardening section will have many books on the subject. All of the ones that I have seen about intro pruning are all about the same. That should get you on the way and then practice! Make sure that you go back and have a look at some of the jobs that you did in the past to see how things worked out.

    I have adapted the carpenters credo of 'Measure twice, cut once' to be 'Look twice, cut once' with pruning. Gluing branches back on really doesn't work too well. . .

    Check with your local county extention agents office. They are usually a good source of info.
