Instructors will employ various methods to demonstrate proper pruning of trees that have been unmanaged. This class differs from our pruning classes in that we will work with older trees that have not been pruned in a long time.

Participants should dress warmly and bring their pruners, loppers, saws and a bag lunch.

The workshop in Dixmont will take place at Cloudy Mountain Farm and will be taught by Laura Seiger, Orchard Coordinator at MOFGA. DIXMONT REGISTRATION
