Apples and pears produce fruit on older wood, and encouraging spur development produces more fruit.  Espalier trees are great for spur production.  The class covers the basics of apple/pear tree pruning and discusses how to develop an espalier tree.  The first hour will be spent in the classroom and the second will be a hands-on pruning demonstration.

Instructor Bill Wanless is co-owner of brooke/wanless gardens, a garden care and pruning service.  He is an ISA certified arborist with over 20 years field experience. He specializes in pruning small trees, shrubs and vines, including fruit-bearing plants.
