It’s unfair that Americans pay the highest prescription drug prices in the world! Tell Congress to stop Rx greed and cut drug prices now.    

Fall Pruning Workshop with Travis Hamilton

Saturday, Nov 2, 2019 at 10:00am

Merryspring Nature Center
30 Conway Road
Camden, ME 04843

Late autumn is a good time to prune trees, but each tree is different. Hamilton’s outdoor class is a comprehensive tree care program. It is designed to teach beginners how to select good pruning tools, which trees can be pruned in fall, how to avoid preventing spring blooms, and how to promote new growth in the following year. Travis will also speak about pruning and tool safety, the need for tree inspections, and what exactly is urban forestry.

This is an outdoor program. Guests should wear weather-appropriate clothing and sturdy shoes.

Hamilton is the owner and operator of ArborTech in Searsmont. He has been working with trees since 2001, and since 2005 has climbed trees competitively in both the Maine Climbing Competition and the New England Climbing Competition. Travis is the 2014 Maine state Champion Tree Climber. He aims to make safety and care paramount to his tree work.

The cost for this class is $10, with a discounted rate of $5 for members of Merryspring. To register please contact 236-2239 or contact
