Tillamook County Master Gardener Pruning Day

 
 
The Tillamook Count Master Gardeners are sponsoring a one-day Community Pruning Day on March 7, 2015.   The goal is to provide pruning assistance to those in Tillamook County who are unable to do so themselves due to physical limitations.  There will be no charge for the help which will allow Master Gardeners to use skills they have learned through the Oregon State University Master Gardener’s program to benefit the Tillamook community.  The pruning will be done by qualified Master Gardeners, assisted by some of this year’s apprentice Master Gardeners.
 
Pruning projects throughout Tillamook County will be considered, but limited to bushes, shrubs and small trees.  Larger trees that would require the use of a ladder to prune will not be eligible for the program. 
 
Applications for the pruning assistance program are available at the OSU Extension Office, 2204 Fourth Street, Tillamook or by clicking on this link.  The applications must be turned in to the extension office by Feb. 20th.  The applications will be reviewed by a Master Gardener evaluation team which will include a drive-by to decide if the project qualifies and to schedule pruning teams.  Those submitting applications will be notified if their applications are accepted and the approximate time of day to expect the pruning team. 
 
For more information about the Master Gardener’s Community Pruning Day, please call 503-842-3433.
