MUCFA Award.png

On March 27, Patrick Plantenberg, Chair of MUCFA, conducted a two hour tree and shrub pruning workshop in Sheridan, MT for the Extension Service.  Twenty-four people attended the program at Jackson Gardens, a Community Garden for the Sheridan Community.   Patrick showed how to prune new trees and establish a central leader. He also spent a lot of time showing how to prune fruit trees in the gardens.    The crowd was enthusiastic and asked lots of great questions. 


MUCFA is proud to teach such classes and MUCFA Board member, Mandy Irlbeck of Mandy’s Tree Care out of Bozeman, is looking forward to teaching a tree planting workshop in Helena on April 20 or 21st at Gardenwerks Nursery.  Watch the MUCFA website and Facebook page for upcoming details on the workshop.
