Tree warden training grafting, tree diseases and pests

This weekend the next two modules of the tree warden training took place: Grafting of fruit trees and tree diseases and pests. The grafting of fruit trees makes it possible to preserve the varieties with their different characteristics and is thus an important component in fruit growing.

Pests and tree diseases can shorten the life of fruit trees or lead to reduced yields. Here, the focus was on recognising the diseases/pests and the ecological avoidance and treatment of these.
