UNH students get public pruning practice

The Associated Press

DURHAM, N.H. — Trees, shrubs and bushes in New Hampshire and southern Maine are getting much-needed trims this spring thanks to horticulture students from the University of New Hampshire.

About a dozen students enrolled in the Thompson School of Applied Science’s horticulture pruning course have been taking their pruners, loppers and pole saws on the road in recent weeks, tackling grape vines at the state’s largest vineyard, an overgrown orchard at Portsmouth’s historic Strawbery Banke and trees linking Durham’s Main Street.

Students will head to a berry farm in Lebanon, Maine, next week.
