Makes sense--
Growing fruit trees does take some effort. This fun, easy to read book shows you how to keep your tree manageable so no ladder needed for pruning, spraying, thinning and harvesting. This book is perfect for the backyard orchard.

Great little book.
I love this book.It is written in a user friendly tone and has helped me to conquer my fear and reluctance of pruning. I have a great fear of cuting tree branches for several reasons.One introducing harmful pathogens into the tree via a wound and making unattractive cuts that may irreversably damage a tree. This book is also small and not intimidating to read. This is a good starter book on the subject of pruning to control size.

Very Informative
This little book is packed with useful information. I've pruned my newly planted fig tress as recommended in the book and look forward to seeing how they develop. It will be great to be able to do all the maintenance on my trees while standing on the ground and to pick all the fruit because I can reach it easily.

Its a great little reminder of what the basics are for growing. It's excellent for when the Husband and Wife do not agree on something. The pruning part was very helpful, removes some doubt.

Very informative. From variety selection all the way to picking fruit, after reading the only thing missing was the dirt on my hands.

Great little book for great little trees!
I can't wait to get my fruit trees next year! The first cut will be the toughest, but if it makes strong, healthy trees that I don't have to climb a ladder to care for, all the better! Very informative book that goes through the why and how of keeping small fruit trees. Highly recommend this book for people getting ready to start growing fruit trees!
