Pruning Apple Trees in NE Minnesota

Join Cindy Hale of Clover Valley Farms, a well-known local orchardist, farmer, researcher and advocate for restoration and planting of NE Minnesota orchards featuring heritage varieties of historical importance to our region.

Appropriate for participants of all skill levels, this ZOOMinar will cover the tools and techniques used for training young apple trees for the development of structure in mature trees, maintenance pruning for optimum health & production. We’ll touch on restorative pruning for older apple trees discussing what you can and can’t do (spoiler alert – you can’t make a big tree small, tune in to find out why!) and how best to approach beginning to restore an older tree.
