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.
