Spring Tree Care: Pest & Disease Management/Fruit Thinning Sunday May 22nd, 1pm - 4pm SW Portland, Washington County, off Canyon Rd In this hands-on workshop you will learn the basics of springtime pest and disease assessment and fruit thinning to increase the health and abundance of local fruit trees!
