Summer Pruning (hands-on workshop)

Saturday June 28th, 10am - 1pm


In this hands-on workshop you will learn the basics of summer pruning in order to increase the health and abundance of local fruit trees! Summer Pruning is a great time to de-invigorate an overgrown tree and encourage the continued development of fruiting laterals.This fun workshop will be an opportunity to gain a basic understanding of the different types of pruning cuts and when these cuts should be used.

About the instructor:

He has taken on the roles of ISA Certified Climbing Arborist, Crew Lead, and Salesman. In April 2013, he started his own small business as "The Tree Nerd." This allows his to focus on the beauty and long term health of trees.
