    How to Prune Olives,

    Instead of Not

    with APA CAP

    Eric King

    Eric will speak about some of the main challenges and strategies for aesthetically pruning Olive trees in the garden setting.

    Sunday, June 12th, 

    4:00 pm to 6:00 pm PDT

    On Zoom

    Eric King has been pruning professionally since 2008.  He has a BFA in sculpture from Boston University and studied horticulture at Merritt College where he met and fell in love with the aesthetic pruning program.  Along with Olives, he enjoys pruning Japanese Maples, California native plants, fruit trees, and most anything else that poses a challenge and has the potential to surprise.  In his spare time he likes hiking, doing the dishes, and spending time working on the trees and plants in his garden, because he apparently doesn’t get enough of that out of his system at work.


    Tree Talks are $10 for APA Members

    $5 for APA Student Members

    $25 for APA supporters (non-members)

    This talk will be recorded and the video will be available to APA members only on the APA Youtube channel
