Pruning Workshop XHRT 0300

This one-day workshop will review important concepts such as good tree structure, what to cut and where to cut, pruning to encourage production in fruit trees, as well as maintenance of pruning tools. Participants will realize the importance of pruning to maintain tree health. There will be a strong focus on modern thinking - minimizing the number of cuts so the tree can heal rapidly. You will not become master pruners but you will know "good pruning" from "bad pruning". Dress for the weather - the afternoon portion includes work outdoors
