Apple Tree Pruning Workshop

  • Somerset County Cooperative Extension 7 County Drive Skowhegan, ME, 04976 United States (map)

Want to learn how to prune those apple trees in your yard or brush up on your pruning skills? If so, then come out to the Yankee Woodlot adjacent to the Cooperative Extension in Skowhegan where apple tree enthusiast Joe Dembeck will discuss methods and tools used to prune apple trees in order to increase their viability and production. After a brief overview participants will then head outdoors to learn and test their skills pruning apple trees. Dress warmly as we will venture outdoors for this event. Feel free to bring your own pruning equipment if you like. There will be pruning poles/saws, hand saws, loppers, etc. to try.

Advanced registration is required and space limited to 20 participants. To register or FMI, e-mail SomersetSWCD.outreach@gmail.com or 207-679-7306.
