Garden Workshop on Maple Pruning


Few aspects of the traditional Japanese garden are as instantly recognizable as the elegant, distinctive contours of a well-maintained Japanese maple. This single-day demonstration includes an in-depth discussion of the various types of maple pruning, as well as specific pruning techniques. Additional time will be spent on shaping and growth regulation. Toward the end of the session, participants will be able to practice what they’ve learned during a short period of hands-on work time.

To bring: Necessary tools, supplies, and printed educational material are provided. Participants should bring their own lunch. The workshop is led by Portland Japanese Garden staff.

Cost:  $80 Members; $100 Non-Members
