OFRE Tree Pruning Workshop

Tuesday, April 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

  • Do you have an overgrown fruit tree?
  • Do you want to get more fruit from your tree?
  • Do you know when it’s OK to prune your tree?

This tree pruning workshop has been years in the making. After numerous requests from pickers and growers, we are thrilled and excited to be offering this free workshop to OFRE members and growers.

This workshop covers:

  • the basis of tree pruning,
  • what time of year is optimal for tree pruning,
  • how to prune your tree for aesthetics, or maximum fruit production,
  • tools required,
  • general safety when pruning,
  • when is the time to call your arborist.
