Good, timely pruning can improve the shape, strength, and fruit set of your trees while simultaneously helping to reduce pest and disease pressure. Certain fruit trees benefit from winter pruning (Jan-Feb), while others benefit greatly from summer pruning (June-Aug). In this class we will cover the fruit trees that are best pruned in the winter, general pruning theory, as well as specific techniques to help you learn how to make the best cuts on your fruit trees with confidence and skill! Methods taught are organic and incorporate permaculture principles.

Taught by local fruit tree expert Monica Maggio of Core Fruit Institute.
