Piper’s Orchard Fruitlet Thinning & Netting Workparty
June 3, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT
Thinning your fruitlets is a critical springtime tree care task to encourage the production of larger, high-quality fruit and to reduce the risk of branches breaking on older trees from the weight. Netting and/or bagging a branch of your tree or the entirety of the tree can help mitigate against winter codling moth and apple maggot fly damage. Join City Fruit for a thinning and netting workparty at Piper’s Orchard to learn more about these forms of preventative tree care and help our city’s trees!
