Unmanaged Apple and Pear Tree Outreach Program

Preserving rural landscapes in Lake County, CA and Jackson County, OR

Pears290
The pear industry faces serious threats from unmanaged pear and apple trees in backyards and on other properties formerly in commercial production. Unless properly cared for, such trees may serve as hosts for pests and diseases which can spread to commercial crops and result in unnecessary chemical treatments. Farm advisors and Master Gardeners in Lake County, CA and Jackson County, OR collaborated with the Kearney Agricultural and Research Extension’s GIS Facility to develop a multi-faceted program to address this problem.
