Summer Fruit Tree Pruning – canceled

Date - 08/20/16
9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Summer is an ideal time to train young trees and encourage optimal fruit production. Summer Fruit Tree Pruning, a sequel to Guadalupe River Park Conservancy’s dormant pruning workshop, will be held in the Historic Orchard, a 3.3 acre site planted in 1994 to showcase the varieties of fruit trees that once made the Santa Clara Valley the “Valley of Heart’s Delight”. Using demonstrations and hands-on practice, professional landscaper Sean McGrail will teach you how to slow down growth, increase light and remove disease from trees. Bring pruning equipment if you have it, and dress in long sleeves and closed toe shoes ready to walk a spectacular orchard that contains over 250 fruit trees, including cherries, apricots, prunes, apples, and more.


Ages 18 and Up
