Trident Maple Workshop

This past weekend, KBS President Shannon Salyer hosted our Trident Maple Workshop.  Attendees created their own trident maple forest displays using 10 seedlings and a trainer pot.  Members brought their tridents in for some early Spring care: pruning, repotting, and learning the “Thread Graft” technique in this workshop.

We Thank the new faces that showed up, and hope to see you at the next workshop!
