Answer: Maintaining fruit trees involves a program of pruning, fertilizing, and pest control. A great resource for learning about caring for fruit trees organically is a book called "The Orchard Almanac" by Stephen Page and Joseph Smillie (published by Spraysaver Publications, Rockport, Maine 04856). This book is available from St. Lawrence Nurseries, a mail-order nursery in Potsdam, NY. Their number is 315/265-6739. The Nursery also produces its own planting and maintenance guide, including organic methods of pest control.
