JOJG Announces Advanced Pruning Workshop

Last Updated: 4/3/2001

Douglas Roth, publisher of the Journal of Japanese Gardening and Tamao Goda, a tree pruning specialist form Tokyo, will be teaching an advanced course May 12-13 on garden pruning techniques on the grounds of the Breezewood Farm, a 50 year old Japanese garden in Monkton, Maryland.

This will be a working, hands-on workshop for JOJG subscribers and JGarden enthusiasts who have already mastered basic pruning skills. The 5 acre Japanese garden has at least 100 trees and shrubs that need to be pruned. There are 30 mature pines, many more than 20 feet tall, so be prepared to work. All students are expected to bring (or purchase or rent) their own aluminum tripod ladders. ROTH Tei-en will provide some tripod ladders for rental.

The cost is $275 per person. Class size is limited to the first eight registrants.

Interested registrants should contact Doug Roth at 610-395-2917 or send $275 personal check to The Journal of Japanese Gardening, P.O. Box 159, Orefield, PA 18069. An information package that includes directions, lodging information, course materials and other details will be mailed prior to the course.
