Pruning Fruit Trees in the Home Orchard How To Booklet
Pruning Fruit Trees in the Home Orchard, by William J. Lord and James F. Anderson, published by the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Massachusetts and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, provides pertinent information and tips on keeping your orchard healthy and producing fine crops each season for years to come.
Not currently available for purchase elsewhere online, this collectible vintage guide makes a handy and useful reference booklet for the amateur tree grower.
Illustrated with line drawings and black and white photographs, it includes information on apple, pear, peach, plum and cherry trees.
It is very good pre-owned condition, with the paperback cover and pages securely stapled. The cover shows the normal smudges associated with handling, as do the pages, but except for a penciled phone number and "Hancock County [ Maine ] Extension Service" on the front and handwritten notes on the inside back, it is clean, without marks or tears.
Measuring 11 inches high by 8.5" wide, it is 20 pages long.
With this booklet, we will include an illustrated fold out guide to "Establishing a Home Lawn" (see the last photo) and info sheets on "Peach Leaf Curl" and the "Stone Fruit Program," all 11" x 8.5" and provided by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension.
