Pruning Of The Black Pines Event Held June 9 In Japanese Garden

Published: June 3, 2013

Ueki masters will demonstrate how to trim Japanese Black Pine trees in Ueki style on Sunday, June 9, at the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden on the CSULB campus. The hours are from 9 a.m.-noon.

The annual event combines cultural and horticultural elements and is a great resource for both garden enthusiasts and experts alike. As one of the feature plants of the garden and as the basis for the gardens framework, it is important that these trees are groomed correctly. The skill of trimming Japanese Black Pines in Ueki style is a unique talent and one that takes many years of practice to truly master. This event gives people the opportunity to learn from experts how to better take care of plants in their own gardens.

The 1.3-acre garden, which was dedicated in 1981, is a community educational, cultural and event venue located on the northwest side of the CSULB campus near Bellflower Boulevard.

Tickets are $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for garden members and free for children under 12.
