The Transylvania Times -

Winter Pruning Classes Available Jan. 28 & 29


Last updated 1/20/2021 at 5pm

Pruning is very important for the health, productivity and appearance of trees and shrubs. Late winter and early spring are great times for shrub and tree pruning because you can easily see the branch structure. The N.C. Cooperative Extension program in Transylvania County will offer two classes to the general public to learn how to take control of pruning and landscape plants, including fruit trees.

Thursday, Jan. 28, at 1:30 p.m. via Zoom (this class is only via Zoom): Home Pruning Of Fruit Trees. Watch and ask questions on how tree pruning improves the health, beauty and function of apple, peach, and Asian pear trees.

Visit to register for this zoom class.

Friday, Jan. 29, at 1 p.m., there will be an in-person meeting at Gaia Herbs limit 20 people. Masks and social distancing are required. Bring your own tools if possible. We will have a few extra tools. Dress for the outdoor weather. Any questions email [email protected] or call 884-3109
