    January Meeting - Fruit Tree Species

    Join us to hear Robin Rivet as she discussed some different considerations for some unusual fruit tree species suitable to our region. What are the considerations for their selection and installation? This may offer some unique alternatives to replace old standards and is a good prelude to our Annual Fruit Tree Pruning Workshop. Robin is a local arborist and master gardener with a wealth of knowledge on this topic..
