More and more North Americans are planting fruit trees in their gardens, parks or on company land. But often new growers are disappointed. Without proper care, young fruit trees are vulnerable to pest and disease problems and often produce poor quality fruit. What many new growers don’t realize is that in order to thrive, fruit trees need skilled hands-on care including correct annual pruning, fertility management and pest and disease prevention.
