Winter Pruning Workshop
*very limited class size, masks required.
Increase the beauty and productivity of your fruit trees with this hands-on pruning class led by the experienced orchardists of Portland Fruit Tree Project. Timely pruning can improve the shape, strength, and fruit set of your trees, while simultaneously helping to reduce pest and disease pressure. Beginning with a brief introduction to general pruning theory, the class then transitions to working directly with fruit trees, allowing participants the opportunity to practice specific techniques for winter pruning. Our goal is to help you learn how to make the best cuts on your fruit trees with confidence and skill. With a focus on rejuvenating old and neglected orchards, this workshop is perfect for those who are interested in heritage fruit and restoration of overall tree health.
