Winter is the best time to prune fruit trees because they’re dormant and you can see the tree structure. Proper pruning timing and technique allows your trees to produce the best fruit. Come join us for a free workshop to learn about pruning fruit trees, presented by UCCE Master Gardener Allen Buchinski. Learn the why, how, and when of pruning for best structure and fruit production. Allen volunteers his skills at the Emma Prusch Park Farm's High Density Fruit Orchard where the trees are kept small and at a reduced height to make harvesting ladder-free!
