Pruning trees and shrubs
October 19 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Autumn is the time to trim woody plants for shape and structure. Ken Gooch will lead a workshop on pruning, including when, why and how to shape, renovate, train or rejuvenate trees and bushes, at the Berkshire Botanical Garden. Ken is a Massachusetts Certified Arborist and the former Forest Health Program Director for the Massachusetts Department of Conservation.
The workshop will learn about pruning tools, timing and specific techniques available to the home gardener. He will cover techniques for evergreen and deciduous hedges. Ken recommends everyone wear waterproof outerwear and boots and bring pruners.
