Fruit Tree Pruning Workshop

September 10, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

FRUIT TREE PRUNING WORKSHOP

Presented by Greening Harmony
with Marianna Hartsong, Ph.D

“This workshop will discuss various approaches to fruit tree pruning.  It will also be an on-the-ground learning for what works and what does not work growing fruit trees in Sedona, AZ.  Except for a grandfather pear and a then young, and now flourishing almond tree, which was on the land when I bought it in 2006, all the fruit and nut trees were planted between ’06 and ’11.  I will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of choosing dwarfed, semi-dwarf, full size bare root trees (most of my trees) – and growing certain fruit trees from seed and the benefit of that.  This past June-July was piercingly hot – fried some of my trees.  You will see results of that as well; I will discuss why I think some trees did well and others did not.  The workshop will be interactive and participatory.”

Looking forward to seeing you there.
Marianna Hartsong

There are honey bees on the property – they know and see each individual who enters the property.  Bee in their presence with great reverence, love and respect.
