Get Ready for Spring - Apple Tree Grafting Presentation

Come join us for an information packed presentation by Donald J. Paukett, who is a member of the “Backyard Fruit Growers Organization”, and Retired Associate Vice President for Administration at Binghamton University. Donald’s presentation will cover numerous topics for those interested in grafting of apple trees, as well as other fruit and nut trees. It will include information on the science of grafting, techniques and procedures, and discussions on creating a new orchard vs. top grafting current trees, & wildlife plot improvements as well as dealing with deer issues, and other pest that might affect your crops. Topics will include information on root stocks, and how they can be used for tree size control, and provide root disease resistance. The collecting and storage of scions for grafting will also be discussed along with an introduction to the various grafting techniques including bud grafting, whip grafting, and top grafts. Don will also cover the pruning of your top grafted trees for long term success, and successful crops. We urge all our members who have an interest in developing a productive fruit, or nut tree orchard to attend this presentation. Please bring a friend or other family member that shares in this interest, and we look forward to seeing you for this very interesting, and informative program.
