Learning About Fruit Tree Care

Hello, I am Reeny Floons. I created this site to explore fruit tree care in more detail. When I was a young girl, I had free access to all of the fruit trees in my neighborhood. In fact, all of the kids living in my area were given permission to take as much fruit as they could eat. After all, most of the trees produced far too much fruit for any one family to consume. I enjoyed fresh plums, pears, apples, oranges and figs on a regular basis. As I grew older, I was always ready to lend a hand in keeping the trees pruned and healthy. I learned a lot about the different pests and diseases that can affect fruit trees. I would like to share my knowledge to help others maintain healthy trees year round. I hope that you will visit my site every day.
