Join Metro arborist Howard Rasmussen for a classroom session at Blue Lake Regional Park on the many aspects of pruning trees in the winter. Emphasis will be placed on fruit trees, but the basic prinicples apply to ornamental and wilderness trees. Subjects will include safety, tools, terminology, desired outcomes and how to get there. A follow-up hands-on session in the field will be offered on a future date if there is strong interest from class participants. Meet at the Lake House.
Ages: 16 and older.
Advanced registration is required.
Pets policy: To protect plants, wildlife and people, Metro does not allow pets at most regional parks and natural areas. Pets can damage sensitive habitat and threaten wildlife the region has worked to protect. In natural areas where dogs are not allowed, people see more wildlife and get closer to it. Seeing-eye dogs or other service animals are allowed. Please bring cleanup materials.
