Pruning Workshop hosted by Duvall Historical Society

Saturday March 25, 2017, 10:00am - 12:00pm

Greg Giuliani, long time member in Seattle Tree Fruit Society, and Randy Lee, member of multiple fruit societies and currently president of Snohomish County Fruit Society, have offered to teach pruning of apple and pear trees at Dougherty Farmstead in Duvall. Dougherty Farmstead is a restored historical farm (circa 1888) with some of the oldest standing structures in the Snoqualmie River Valley.

Greg will teach basic pruning techniques. There are 4 dwarf apple trees that need light manicuring and 2 others that need vigorous pruning. Folks can watch and do hands on work on these apples. Randy will teach renovation on an antique pear with several spars and lots of internal limbs. The pear, which is dangerous due to ladder work, will have the 3 year renovation sequence addressed.

Each attendee should bring their own pruning tools. See you there:)
