Shade Tree Pruning Workshop

Pruning Young Trees for Quality During Nursery Production
Wednesday March 19, 2008 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Mountain Horticultural Crops Research and Extension Center

Pruning correctly early in production can increase the value of shade and flowering trees. Learn how at our hands-on pruning workshop at the Mountain Horticultural Crops Research and Extension Center. This workshop is tailored for nursery workers responsible for pruning field and container grown trees. We will demonstrate the techniques, provide reference material for use later, and then you will prune
trees planted especially for this pruning workshop. All trees were donated as branched whips last year by Carlton Plants, Inc. They were planted with you in mind - so get out here and learn to prune!!! The workshop is being provided in both Spanish and English. We will meet at the parking lot in front of the Lathe House on the research station farm.

For more information contact your local Cooperative Extension Center and ask for the Commercial Horticulture Agent.
