Description

Urban Forestry planted a demonstration orchard outside of our North Portland office in 2010. The orchard includes 55 diverse fruit and nut trees, from the traditional apples, pears, and cherries to paw paws, persimmons, jujubes, mulberries, and medlars. These young trees are now ready for their winter pruning. This is a great opportunity for beginners learn fruit tree pruning basics or for veterans to sharpen their skills.
