JOJG Announces Advanced Pruning Workshop

Last Updated: 3/27/2004

Douglas Roth, publisher of the Journal of Japanese Gardening and Tamao Goda, tree pruning specialist from Tokyo, will be leading this now annual event at the Breezewood Farm and Garden. Breezewood is a mature Japanese garden that has been under development for five decades. It is a private garden that is owned by Thorne and Hannah Gould. The workshop participants use their skills to help improve the condition of the garden.

The workshop focuses on advanced techniques. This will be a working, hands-on workshop for JOJG subscribers who have already mastered basic pruning skills. The 5-acre Japanese garden has at least 100 trees and shrubs that require pruning. There are 30 mature pines, many more than 20 ft in height. Be prepared to work. All students are expected to bring (or purchase) their own aluminum tripod ladders. Roth Tei-en may provide some tripod ladders for rental.

The cost is $225 per person and class size in limited to the first eight registrants. Upon registration, an information packet will be mailed with directions, lodging, meals, and course materials.

To register, send name, address, telephone number and check payable to:
