Espalier Pruning & Training Workshop with Portland Fruit Tree Project
Saturday January 30th, 10am - 1pm
SE Portland, Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhood
This fun workshop will be an opportunity to learn what it takes to establish a proper espalier training system for your fruit tree and what pruning cuts you need to make to maintain that structure. You'll also be able to gain some practice pruning on espaliered trees under skilled supervision at this event.
To attend this workshop we ask that you already have a basic understanding of pruning. If you do not have a basic understanding of pruning, please attend one of our Winter Pruning workshops.
