We strongly suggest a retail grade dormant pruning on all fruit trees, especially on almonds, peaches and nectarines. It is imperative to uniformly top and thin the branching structure on stone fruit to insure a healthy vigorous tree.
Water and Mulch
DWN’s Tom Spellman discusses water conservation and education with folks at the Landscape and Water Conservation Fair held recently in Montclair, CA. Tom first reviews a well-mulched fruit tree demonstration planting, then engages in a series of interviews and conversations, with topics including the education of young people about the water cycle and the importance of water conservation; easy ways to help conserve, such as not wasting water before it becomes warm at the sink or shower (use it to water plants!); precision irrigation sprinkler nozzles from Toro Irrigation; landscaping with dry-climate plants. A highlight is the great group of volunteer girls from Ayala High School. Video concludes with a demonstration by an expert water conservationist on the preferred disposition of surplus fresh fruit.
Ever wonder what happens when you water the street? Ever ponder where all that water goes? Well, we give you a good idea with a tour of the TreePeople Urban Watershed demonstration.
