On February 24, 2008 at 1 PM, there will be a lecture by Dennis Northon of
Royal Oak Farm on Hardy Peaches and Pest Management. The lecture itself is
but there is a parking fee of $15 per car to get into the Chicago Botanic
The Botanic Garden is located in Glencoe Illinois, just East of Hywy 94 off Lake
Something for you on peach trees.
You can use this section for your class. Also a good book for pruning peach
trees is here:
A World Wide Pruning a photos guide.
You will use every opportunity to sneak in a plug for your junk. I did not ask
your help, only invited people to a lecture by someone who knows a hell of a lot
more about peach trees than you do..
Its hard when you have an understanding of peach trees.
Where is their dissections at explaining the response of peach trees to
See I understand the internal response to pruning. Again, where is their
dissections at or don't they dissect trees?
BTW my junk is more then you have to offer. The biggest pest for peaches is
the improper pruning by humans. do they address that pest?
Imagine a cloudless summer day, by a lake.
The grass is green, there are ducks swimming around.
The only sounds are birds chirping.
In short it's a perfect day.
Now add a jackhammer breaking up concrete 20 feet away.
The constant spamming of your junk John, is that jackhammer.
And yes, that's all I have to offer. :D
Do you think maybe, just maybe, the Chicago Botanic Garden staff might
know a little about trees? And if they brought a guy in to give a
talk, maybe, speaking hypothetically here, HE KNOWS A THING OR TWO?

Who is talking about dissection. He is pruning trees, not doing surgery on
Well, nobody can get as much action on the web like you, even if it is full
of a lot of repetitive junk. Other than your self proclaimed expertise,
what degrees do you hold? This man runs his own business raising and
selling peaches. He is not some blowhard like you who can only fantasize
about practical growing and care of fruit trees. By your standards,
knowledge is only valuable if you get lots of coverage on the web. What did
we do before there was a web? I guess we have to poo poo all the famous
biologists and arborists of the past, because they weren't on the web.
In the future, do not reply to any of my postings. I am not interested in
anything you have to say.
