Please join us for a fruit tree pruning workshop at the Young Family Ranch, 260 Oregon Street in Weaverville, Saturday, February 15th from 1:00 - 3:30 p.m. Starting at 1:00 pm, the workshop will provide a lecture/review on fundamentals of pruning, dormant vs. summer pruning, heading vs. thinning cuts, proper pruning cuts, disease prevention, appropriate tools and tool care, tips for restoring neglected, old fruit trees. At 2:00 pm, attendees can practice hands-on pruning with guidance from Master Gardeners. You can attend all or part of the workshops. Some tools and ladders will be provided. We encourage you to bring your own pruning tools if you would like to have them sharpened. Please dress warmly as the hands-on portion of the workshop will be held outside. In the event of rain, the lecture will be held, but the hands-on pruning will be cancelled.
