Fruit tree pruning

If you grow fruit trees, it’s important to know how to prune them correctly to promote yearly fruiting and reduce disease problems. At a hands-on demonstration April 2, 1-3 p.m. at Indian Creek orchard, orchardist Steve Cummins will demonstrate pruning and training techniques for both young and mature trees, including dwarf, semi-dwarf and standard trees. Species covered will include apple, peach and plum trees.

Pre-registration is required. Call 272-2292 to register by phone or go to the registration page to register online.

The pruning demonstration will take place in the orchard; dress for the weather.
