Late Summer and early fall (after harvest) is a perfect time for pruning your fruit trees! Yes, traditional wisdom says to prune in the early spring but, let’s face it, it’s REALLY cold then so late summer pruning could be much more comfortable! Our Master Gardener experts will show you how to prune your fruit trees post-harvest for the best results in coming years. Please join us at our summer pruning seminar.

• Discuss Why pruning fruiting trees is important and what can be accomplished with effective pruning
• Provide an overview of tree selection and proper planting methods
• Discuss When pruning should be done
• Demonstrate How to prune fruit trees
• Review safety considerations when pruning
