Good pruning and training of fruit trees is essential to maintaining a healthy orchard. But the pruning of fruit trees can be a complex and difficult task. During this class we’re going to show you how to trim a tree in order to remove dead or diseased wood, for fruit production and for shape. You’ll get hands-on experience and education from a certified arborist on all different types of fruit trees, from Loquat, citrus, apple, apricot, and guava. Wear comfortable clothing which are OK to get dirty. Bring gloves, wear sturdy shoes, and bring plenty of water.

    Okay group, I'm so sorry to have missed out on meeting all of you, but I'm going to assist Dawn in taking one of our dogs to get microchipped. In addition I've been feeling under the weather. On a good note, while in Temecula I think I'll be getting a new Troy Built Chipper Shredder! I look forward to meeting all of you soon.

      Hi Christine, We really do not have an end time, but you can stay as long as you want, or are available to stay. I would expect somewhere around 3-4 hrs.
