The Pruning Trees and Shrubs workshop begins at 2pm at the Macphail Woods Nature Centre.
The pruning workshop will be of interest to all those who work with and enjoy woody plants. Proper pruning maintains and improves the health and value of plants, whether in a commercial forest, a watershed, a private woodlot or just around your home.
It begins at the Nature Centre with a presentation on proper pruning practices and a discussion on tools and publications. There will then be a hands-on demonstration where participants can prune trees and shrubs of different species and ages. The presentation and pruning will show how to get the best results and avoid future problems. Participants should bring suitable weather gear and their favourite pruning tools, if available.
