*Pruning Older Fruit Trees

We had such a good response to last year’s fruit tree class that we thought we’d divide into two groups; this class will cover how to prune and restore more established, older fruit trees.  Fruit trees require annual pruning for optimal health and productivity, you can even prune up to three times a year to control size and fruit set. Come see pruning demonstrations on existing fruit trees and learn how to tackle those daunting larger specimens, ensuring continued vigor and proper training.  Fresh coffee will be on hand to keep you warm for this outside demo.
