Apple Pruning Workshop

Releasing and pruning wild apple trees can keep them healthy and result in greater fruit production for a wide variety of wildlife.  This basic introduction to releasing and pruning wild apple trees, with both indoor classroom session and outdoor hands-on field practice, will be led by Nigel Manly (Director of The Rocks in Bethlehem). The indoor portion will be held in Farmington, NH @ The Goodwin Library and field pruning practice will be held at the nearby Jennings Forest Reservation

Participants will learn about:

  • the origin of apple trees now found wild in New Hampshire forests
  • recommended best-practices for pruning apple trees
  • the benefits to wildlife from improved trees for mast

Bring a bag lunch and water, and dress in warm layers for outdoor practice.
