The course, organised by the Tavy & Tamar Apple Group, will again have professional tutor Charles Staniland imparting over 30 years knowledge & experience as participants learn how to tackle trees.

This year Charles will commence with instruction in ‘formative pruning’ for young trees aged between one and five years, we will then will move on to more mature trees. 

Outdoor warm clothing, strong boots and gloves should be worn. Please bring a packed lunch together with pruning tools, secateurs, saws etc.

No climbing is required but there will be walking over rough ground. 

The cost is £15.00 for members (£20.00 non-members but includes one year membership!) Colin Trier is kindly hosting the start of the day.
