Posted 6/6/2008

SOUTHERN NEVADA-Tom Spellman, from Dave Wilson Nursery, is the guest speaker at University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s free seminar on growing citrus and other tender subtropical fruit trees in Southern Nevada on Tuesday, June 24, 2008. The seminar, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., is being held at the Lifelong Learning Center, located at 8050 S. Maryland Pkwy., Las Vegas, NV 89123, in classrooms C and D.

Spellman has nearly 30 years experience in the growing of avocados, citrus, subtropical and deciduous fruit trees. Established in 1938 near Modesto, California, Dave Wilson Nursery (DWN) has grown to become one of the largest growers of deciduous fruit, nut and shade trees in California. DWN grows trees for both commercial orchards and the home garden trade. DWN is currently farming more than three thousand acres, on a four year rotation, growing over three million trees a year. Spellman noted, "that if you have any current problems on your trees that you want addressed, bring a sample to the seminar!"
