Brooks County Pecan Pruning Clinic




I wanted to share with you information pertaining to a pecan pruning clinic that we will be conducting in January.  The meeting will cover information related to the pruning of young pecan trees and planting demonstrations.  Dr. Lenny Wells, UGA Pecan specialist will be demonstrating pruning techniques and available to answer questions related to pecan planting &/or production.  For additional references & resource, I will provide educational material related to program topics.  This meeting will be held in orchard at Mr. Jim Loar’s orchard, 1677 Adel Highway (Hwy. 76), Quitman, on Thursday, January 19th beginning at 10:00 am.  This meeting is sponsored by Cool Planet and will end with lunch at noon.  So that we may plan for program and meal, please RSVP to our office (229-263-4103) by Tuesday, January 17th.  I believe this will provide a unique, hands on opportunity for growers interested in pecan production.
