University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Master Gardener Orchard is offering four winter pruning classes in January. Learn how to prune your fruit trees correctly for high-quality fruit production. Classes begin at 9 a.m. and repeat each hour until Noon.

Robert “Bob” Morris, professor emeritus for Cooperative Extension and horticulturist will be leading the instruction. The topic for January 7 is apples, pears and quince; January 14, fertilizing fruit trees and pest control; January 21, figs, pomegranates and persimmons; and January 28, almonds and pistachios.

Reservations are not required. The Orchard is located at 7700 Horse Drive, North Las Vegas (100 yards east of the intersection of North Decatur and Horse Drive. Take I-15 or I-95 North to the CC215 and exit North Decatur going north. Horse Drive is about 3 ½ miles north of the CC215 exit).

A $5 donation is requested for the classes to help support educational research at the Orchard. For more information, please email or call Jonathan Chodacki at 702-257-5532.
