HANNIBAL, Mo. – Winter is the prime time to prune trees. That means now is a good time to get helpful advice on tree work that will be done in coming months. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) invites homeowners for a tree pruning and maintenance workshop from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 4, at Huckleberry Park Pavilion in Hannibal. Space is limited and registration is required by Oct. 3.

MDC foresters will share tips on planting trees, maintenance techniques, and will discuss tree health.

"Trees are valuable to our health, wealth, environment, and happiness," said MDC Forester Kyle Monroe. "This workshop will cover the basics to give a homeowner the necessary knowledge to make sure their tree(s) will survive and thrive for many years."

This workshop is co-sponsored by the Hannibal tree board.

Huckleberry Park is located at Highway 61 South and Huckleberry Drive. For more information or to register call 573-248-2530.
