Pruning to Restore Orchards – SilvoCulture

March 5 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

Come join Silvoculture for an afternoon of pruning and discussion with Michael Judd and Matthew Jacobsen on our 60 year-old chestnut orchard!


Pruning is a time-honored technique to rejuvenate woody plants by creating new growth and increasing light and air flow. With a grant from NorthEast SARE, SilvoCulture is studying the effect of pruning on yield of Chinese chestnut trees. Michael will be speaking on the why and how of pruning and arborist Matthew will be providing a pruning demonstration on the trees in the orchard.
