Pruning Fruit Trees in the Home Orchard How To Booklet
In a time of self-reliance and sustainability, this vintage how-to booklet, Pruning Fruit Trees in the Home Orchard, provides pertinent information and tips on keeping your orchard healthy and producing fine crops each season for years to come.
The trees addressed are apple, pear, peach, plum and cherry. Remember, maintaining your trees in "apple pie order," adds great nutrition to your diet, and it's also good exercise.
Written by William J. Lord and James F. Anderson and published by the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Massachusetts and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, this printing, revised in 1981, is illustrated with line drawings and black and white photographs.
It is very good used condition, the paperback cover and pages are 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, 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.
