    Here's a few things I salvaged from the "other" forum. Original post by CrazyEd.... All credit goes to him for gathering this info... I did go though and remove any links the referred to the old forum as it will be gone shortly. -- Matt

    There is tons of good information on this forum about growing and maintaining fruit trees, but it's scattered all over the place, many times going back to threads that were created many years ago. I'm putting this thread together to help centralize some of that. I know I have read these threads and continue to reference them all the time as they are very helpful. These threads will save you time and money.

    If you have other useful links please send me a PM and I will add them to this directory.

    Thanks to all who continue to contribute on the subject of growing fruit trees. I know my orchard is a better place because of the help of many of the experts who contribute on this forum.
