ISA certified arborist David Couse demonstrated proper apple tree pruning techniques at a Wildsight-sponsored workshop held at  a private residence in Cranbrook on Saturday, April 6, and at another workshop in Kimberley later that same day. Couse took the mystery out of the process and showed how proper pruning leads to better tree health and better fruit production. The workshops were part of Wildsight’s Apple Capture project, which seeks to put apples on local trees into the hands of people who want to use them. Apple picking, juicing and dehydrating equipment are available in both Cranbrook and Kimberley. Call 250-908-3276.
