Description: What are the benefits of pruning fruit trees? When, how and with what should we prune? Join us for an informative discussion and hands-on demonstration of the tools and techniques for pruning various types of fruit trees led by Anton Elbers from Orchard Hill Farm.
Anton Elbers has lived in NH since 1971 when he came to Alstead to learn farming as a young man. He helped plant and establish the orchard at Orchard Hill Farm in East Al¬stead back in 1972. Annual pruning is a large part of main¬taining this orchard that is primarily apples, but also pears, plums, and peaches on a variety of rootstocks. Anton will be sharing some of what he has learned from working with the trees at Orchard Hill over the years.
