In this class, we cover the basics of pruning fruit trees, including the differences amongst pruning various types of fruit trees. We discuss the best timing, tools, and strategies for keeping your fruit trees pruned and healthy. We also cover tool maintenance, so please bring any pruning tools you have. We have tools available as well for those that are tool-less. We also briefly cover grafting and the benefits of this practice. Late winter is the time to prune and graft so come out and learn! Cost for the class is $5. Cash, check and venmo accepted.
