Summer Fruit Tree Pruning 6/18/22


Fruit trees usually need pruned twice a year – once while dormant in winter and once while active in summer. In this class we practice hands-on fruit tree pruning of fresh green growth. This will include a holistic view of the tree to map out a plan for deciding on branch removal and desired tree shape. In this session we will also be training branches with a focus of reducing overall pruning over time. Together we will practice basic techniques on the proper way to make cuts to manage trees and shrubs of different heights and growth patterns. We’ll go over the proper tools needed and their maintenance as well as sanitary practices in the orchard.

Dress to be outside the whole time you are with us. Please check the weatherPlease read our “What to expect at Red Beet Row” document so you can plan.
