Berkshire Botanical Garden
Spring is a great time to assess woody shrubs for shape, structure, and winter damage. This workshop will focus on learning by doing. Ron Yaple, owner of Race Mountain Tree Services in Sheffield, MA, will demonstrate how to renovate, rejuvenate, and shape shrubs and small ornamental trees for structure, health, and optimal growth. Plants covered will include viburnums, lilacs, witch hazels, deciduous azaleas, sweetshrubs, crab apples, and ornamental cherries. Participants should dress for the weather, bring pruners, work gloves, and a bag lunch.
Ron Yaple, owner of Race Mountain Tree Services in Sheffield, MA, has developed a regional reputation as a premier arborist. He is a dedicated and knowledgeable teacher of arboriculture.
