PRUNING FRUIT TREES IN A BACKYARD ORCHARD
Thursday, March 22, 2018

Emerald Acres Farm, 6424 Emerald Drive, Sturgeon Bay
Pruning of fruit trees is necessary if growers want their trees to have optimal health and high production capacity. Now is the ideal time to be doing these yearly pruning activities. Proper pruning also helps increase fruit size and quality by assisting with your insect and disease management and by regulating fruit set.
Scott Reuss, UW-Extension Marinette County Agriculture Agent, will present on the basics of pruning fruit trees including an instructional presentation and demonstration.
Registration fee: $5.00 (cash or check payable to: UW-Extension)
