Restorative pruning in old orchards

December 7 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

7 December 2019 – Jeacock’s Orchard, Cow Lane, Tring, HP23 5NS. 1000-1530. Tutor Anna Baldwin

This one-day workshop is aimed at those with an interest in caring for older fruit trees. The emphasis will be on the pruning and care of aged apple trees which have already received some restorative pruning.  This workshop is ideal for anyone who has attended a previous course on restorative pruning or for those who have trees that had some restorative pruning work carried out within the last 5 years.

The workshop will take place outdoors, and much of the day will be spent undertaking practical restorative pruning work using hand tools (particularly pole-saws.) There are toilets, shelter and tea/coffee making facilities on site. Participants are advised to bring a packed lunch.

Participants are advised to bring warm and waterproof clothing and stout, waterproof footwear. We also ask you to bring a pair of strong work gloves. All tools and PPE will be provided, although you may bring your own, if you prefer to do so. If using your own tools, please make sure that they are clean and sharp.

Contact Howard.Jones@uea.ac.uk to book a place – free to attend so book early
