Join us for this virtual class! It’s time for dormant tree pruning. Join us for a virtual class on pruning fruit trees for disease management and higher-quality fruit set. We will show you how to use our favorite pruning tools to remove water sprouts, suckers, and dead/diseased/damaged branches. We will discuss and demonstrate shaping cuts for different types of fruit trees for higher quality fruit set and ripening, including how to use a handy tool for determining how much fruit a branch can support without breaking. This class will include a thorough look at flowering buds and leaf buds so you can confidently make decisions for stimulating growth and encouraging development of delicious fruit.
