Fruit Tree Pruning and Planning

Do you want to grow your own delicious fruit? Pruning helps maintain the size and health of fruit trees and leads to larger fruit sizes and a more abundant harvest. 

This class will start with an introductory talk on the "philosophy and how to's" of pruning fruit trees. We will prune a variety apple & cherry trees in outside orchards along with espaliered cherry and apple high tunnel trees. Handouts will be given for future reference.

We will have a discussion about apple tree varieties for outside and inside fruit production that grow in Alaska.  It will end with the option of going to the Wagon and having Steve (the new owner) give a brief talk about his views on pruning and what fruit trees he offers locally.

All ages. Dress accordingly for the weather.

Instructor: Homer Folk School Board member Neil Wagner has been growing fruit trees and perennial berries for over a decade and studying them for decades.
