Group offers Christmas tree farming workshop

September 26, 2012
By Richard Gast , Franklin County Cornell Cooperative Extension

Christmas tree growers and those considering getting started are invited to attend a pre-season Cornell Cooperative Extension workshop on Christmas tree farming. This is an opportunity to look at stands of production trees in different stages of development, to speak with experienced growers and to ask questions of both the growers and Cornell Integrated Pest Management specialist Betsy Lamb. Among the topics we will be discussing are site selection, obtaining and caring for planting stock, cultural practices (shaping and shearing), insects and diseases, and marketing. The workshop is free and open to the public. We hope to be able to offer one state Department of Environmental Conservation pesticide applicator re-certification credit to attendees needing re-certification credits.
