Village to Celebrate Late Summer Arbor Day
The Village of Perry Tree Board will hold a special Arbor Day event on Thursday, Aug. 27, 2020, at 6:30 p.m. in the Village Park at Lake St.
All residents are invited to a tree pruning workshop, conducted by Don Gasiewicz, Wyoming County Cornell Cooperative Extension horticulture/natural resources community educator.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Tree Board delayed the annual spring Arbor Day event. Spring tree planting, usually a volunteer activity to celebrate Arbor Day, was done by the village’s Department of Public Works.
Gasiewicz will discuss and demonstrate the pruning of common woody ornamentals and trees in the home landscape to make you a confident pruner. Topics he’ll cover include:
- Assessing tree and shrub health.
- Why, when and what to prune
- Tools for pruning and choosing the right tool for the proper cut.
- How to prune and where to make the cuts.
Due to Covid-19, masks are required if 6-foot social distancing is not possible during the workshop.
