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)

Home Garden Soil Testing

Garden soils should be tested about every 3 years.  Sampling early in spring or late fall assures you will have recommendations before buying fertilizer.

What is needed:  Approximately 2 cups of soil (dry).  Put soil into a zip top plastic bag and bring it to the Door County Extension Office.  A short form is completed to be sent with your sample.  The cost is $15.00/sample, plus $2.00/sample for postage.  Results are usually processed within 10 working days.  If you would like more information, please contact the Extension Office at 920-746-2260.   More specific information can be found at the UW Soils Lab website:  http://uwlab.soils.wisc.edu/
