Skillshare: Apple Tree Pruning

  • February 13, 2011 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please join our own Dave Homa (who has done pruning professionally) in learning how to prune your apple trees while they are in their winter dormancy in order to improve their ongoing health and productivity. Dave will be running this skillshare at Ten Apple Farm in Gray, Maine.

The event will include discussion of techniques, common mistakes and suggested tools. Handouts provided. The session is expected to run about 3 to 3.5h, including a potluck lunch (pls bring a dish to share and your own potluck kit - utensils, bowl, etc.)

Space is limited. If this fills up quickly and you still want to get in on this, please email the meetup organizer to start a list for running a possible repeat event!

Dress in layers for the weather. We will have access to covered/heated spaces to warm up if needed.

    Karl and David, Thank you so much for providing a great learning opportunity. I found it very helpful. Sorry I couldn't stay for lunch it looked delicious.

    Hey All,
    Didn't have much luck with the snow blower getting down to the orchard. SO, definitely bring snowshoes if you have them and an extra pair for those who might not. We've got 2 extra pairs that 2 folks can use. At least it shouldn't be too cold.

    I'm going to try to snowblow a path to the orchard and around the trees on Saturday, but snowshoes might not be a bad idea.

    I'm going to coordinate some paths and around the trees like last year with Karl, but feel free to bring snow shoes, and even more importantly wear boots with gators if you have them.

    Shall we bring our snow shoes? Are we going out to the orchard?

    Can't go this year--but can say that David is great and gets you going on the basics so you leave with skills you can use--even if you don't own trees! :)
