Forester Bruce Robinson will lead a hands-on workshop about managing wild apple trees at the Seager farm on Saturday, August 19th.

Wild apple trees are a valuable resource that produce food and shelter for a wide array of wildlife, from game animals to songbirds and insects. Managing apple trees can keep them healthy and make them more productive. In this workshop, Bruce will discuss the principles of pruning and other management activities. We will then work in small groups to put these principles into practice by pruning some trees under Bruce’s guidance.

This is a full-day workshop and will be held rain or shine, so be prepared for the weather.

Previous workshops have covered shaping young trees, pruning trees growing in the open, and rehabilitating trees that are overgrown in the woods. The specific topics for this workshop will be driven by the interests of the participants, so come prepared with questions and be ready to work.
