Event description

Description

Join us for a day of tree pruning in the Moon-Randolph Homestead’s historic apple orchard. Learn the art of tree pruning with skilled arborist, Mark Van Der Meer, of Watershed Consulting, as well as other experienced pruners. This workshop is all about learning how to care for older trees. Learn the long and slow process of bringing an aging or neglected tree back into production, while getting to know some of the 130-year-old apple trees in the historic Moon-Randolph orchard. Participants may also learn how to train young trees to a healthy growth habit on one of the 13 newly-planted apple trees at the Homestead. Both new and experienced pruners are encouraged to attend and help the Homestead maintain the health and vigor of its heritage apple orchard.

Pruning starts at 9 a.m. We will break for lunch at 1 p.m. Coffee, lunch, and cider provided.

Cost is $10 per adult. Children are free.

Be sure to bring appropriate clothing for cold and wet spring weather, drinking water, and the desire to get to know a tree. For those with pruning equipment, bring handsaws, pole saws, loppers, hand shears, gloves, and orchard ladders, etc. There will be plenty of tools for the empty-handed.

No dogs please.
