The Noble Research Institute in Ardmore will host a Pruning Pecan Trees for Improved Production field day from 1 to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12 at Basil Savage’s Orchard, located at 21955 Savage Road in Madill.

Noble Research Institute pecan specialists will demonstrate the different techniques used in pruning pecan trees, such as:

• Removing limbs.

• Tree maintenance.

• Influence of pruning on pest management.

• Pros and cons of wisping, hedging and thinning pecan trees.

Attendees will learn how to properly prune both young and producing pecan trees through in-field demonstrations. Weather appropriate outdoor attire should be worn.

“The attention to detail in the establishment years improves the possibility of early and enhanced production in a new pecan orchard,” said senior pecan specialist Charlie Graham, Ph.D.
