How do I plan and prepare for an orchard?

How do I get a bountiful crop?

What do I need to know before pruning?

What are the best times to prune?

What is winter chill?

How is it effecting your crop?

Come, join Greener Way Associates, located at 10708 Northgate Street, Culver City 90230 for a pruning demonstration, followed by a reception.

Landscape Architect and Consulting Arborist Pieter Severynen will hold a fruit tree pruning demonstration in the Culver City Greener Way orchard, which was planned, prepared, and planted for our warm Southern California climate. Climate change is affecting our trees, and our practices here are different from colder climates. The demonstration will cover all the trees in the orchard. Tree shapes, long term health, maintenance, pruning tools and techniques, and what decisions to make before pruning will also be discussed. Pieter has been pruning fruit trees for over 50 years. He teaches arboriculture at UCLA. He has represented the ASLA, the American Society of Landscape Architects, in the preparation of the recently published 10th Edition of the CTLA (Council of Tree and Landscape Appraisers) prestigiously rated ‘Guide for Plant Appraisal’ which shows tree appraisers how to evaluate trees. He maintains an active consulting practice, writes tree reports, advises homeowners on planting and maintenance of fruit and shade trees, holds tree pruning demonstrations, and lectures on climate change. In this hands-on demonstration, Pieter welcomes questions specific to your trees!
