Fruit Tree Pruning: 10-Minute University™ Noon-Time Chat
Are you confident with pruning? Do your fruit trees have a good form and produce a consistent crop each year? Can you reach your tree safely to prune and harvest? If not, this class can help. Join Clackamas County Master Gardener Association to learn proven practices that will boost your confidence in pruning and get you ready for a date with your trees.

Pruning is important to fruit trees regardless of age. Young trees require vigilant monitoring and shaping to develop a strong framework. Mature trees need annual, skilled pruning to stay productive.

This class will discuss how to use different types of pruning cuts and when and where to apply them. Attendees will learn whether fruits are produced on spurs or shoots so that pruning stimulates an abundance of fruiting wood to support good production.

Join us and learn how to shape a young tree and steps for pruning pome fruits (apple and pear), stone fruits (plum, cherry, apricot, peach and nectarine), persimmon and fig.
