Tree hygiene operations in late October

This is a good time to repair or replace rabbit guards, check wire netting fences, repair holes and broken stakes, check gateways, as rabbits are getting hungry and the bark of fruit trees is on their wish list.

Tree hygiene this time of the year is very important. Many spores of diseases are carried over by fallen leaves. Collect and remove all dropped leaves. In that way the trees will have a better start next year.
