Pruning Party

This Saturday afternoon, the 20th, Wildwood will offer a workshop on pruning and shaping trees.  The focus will be on Japanese maples, but the principles transfer to ginkgo, dogwood, and conifers.

The first part of the workshop will be a tour of larger trees in the nursery.  Studying mature trees is very helpful when deciding how to shape a younger tree.

The second part of the workshop will be a democratic effort to prune a 25 gallon forest green maple.  The tree is very dense and twiggy now.  Hopefully it will be airy and beautiful after the haircut!

The last part of the workshop will be a discussion of container grown plants with particular focus on root pruning.
