Fruit tree pruning workshop in Acadia National Park

 

(Bar Harbor, Maine) – On Saturday, May 1, from 9 a.m. to noon, there will be a tree pruning workshop held in Acadia National Park. The rain date is May 8 at the same time. The workshop will take place in back of Sand Beach, which is accessed by going down the Schooner Head Road from Bar Harbor. At the four-way stop, continue straight past the small parking lot. There is a house on the left and parking is along the road or across from the house.

 

Acadia has several historic apple orchards and many wild apple trees are in need of renovation pruning. Renae Moran, a fruit tree expert at the University of Maine, will lead the workshop, which will include a demonstration of basic pruning techniques with a chance for hands on learning. Please bring your own pruning tools.

 

There is no fee for the workshop, but registration is required. Please contact Rebecca Cole-Will at 207-288-8728, or email at e-mail us, for more information and to register.
