Fruit Tree Pruning

Saturday, February 12, 2022
from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
in the MCBG Education Center and Orchard


When it comes to basic care and pruning of fruit trees, there are many different techniques, several of which have predictable results. This workshop will help you optimize performance from your fruit trees, according to your own needs and the specific environment in which the trees are growing. The focus will primarily be on, but not limited too, the pruning of fruit tree varieties appropriate to the North Coast climate, specifically apples, pears, and select stone fruits. Learn how the time of year and type of pruning cut can greatly influence the success of your fruit trees. We will cover a complete year’s cycle of tree growth — from the tree’s perspective as well as our own.

Instructor: Di Scott has more than 20 years of coastal orchard experience and a lifetime of horticultural knowledge.
