Home Fruit Orchard Pruning Techniques (C 1087) by Erick Smith, Bob Westerfield, and Dario Chavez is a review of pruning practices for tree, bush, bramble, and vine fruiting plants, including blueberry. Though the title focuses on the homeowner these practices can be applied commercially.

These publications are intended as reminders for ‘How To’ and are available for free download. Also, please search UGA Extension Publications for other topics of interest. If you find topics are lacking in relation to blueberry or other fruiting crops please send you queries to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact your local county ANR agent.
