Releasing and pruning wild apple trees can keep them healthy and result in greater fruit production for use by a wide variety of wildlife. This basic introduction to releasing and pruning wild apple trees, with both indoor classroom session and outdoor field practice, will be led by Nigel Manley (Director of The Rocks, the North Country Conservation & Education Center of the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests). The indoor portion will be held at the The Fells (456 Route 103A, Newbury, NH) and then we walk one mile along a woods trail to some field pruning practice.
No experience required – Winter footwear and traction highly recommended
What to Bring: Bring a bag lunch and water, and dress in warm layers for outdoor practice. Snowshoes may be necessary if snow cover is still deep.
Workshop is FREE and pre-registration is requested. Please RSVP online here or use the link below the map.
