Really appreciate the scope of this course. Lots of topics covered. I would have liked to see a start to finish samples of pruning each kind of tree and shrub science each have their own peculiarities. Thanks Miracle Team!

Just finished the pruning course. I am starting a fruit trees in my yard and know pruning and training will be important. I now also know different trees thank different pruning or training but all Fruit trees need to be level or downword. The upward ones are just trees.

I decided to buy the course because I have over 50 varieties of fruit trees on 1/4 acre. It was great to learn about pruning apple, plum, and pear. I was hoping to learn about other varieties too, like peach, apricot, and nuts but maybe the principals are the same. Excited to prune next month after rewatching the whole course and experimenting. Definitely worth the money!

I like the chimney idea. Makes sense. That's a good takeaway to increase air circulation & sunlight.

After working through Stefans The Permaculture Orchard, I purchased this video series to continue getting great tips, tricks and advise for my 1/3 acre forest garden. I am absolutely delighted with the great knowledge I was able to gain in a very short and entertaining way. - Let's start to put things into practice.

Thank you! I got so many ideas for our 3 acres in upstate NY; now I want to try tucking a Japanese walnut in one of our out-of-the-way corners.

Thanks for the inspiration! I grew up with an abandoned apple orchard behind my childhood home and have many wonderful memories exploring the orchard and eating apples and wild rapsberries. We are currently creating a mini suburban permaculture orchard in our front and back yard with the kids. You have given me lots of good ideas!

I'm grateful for the humor among all the permaculture how to and why's. Sure would like to see that design course I know your coming out with. I think I'll start by planting a acre this fall, you gave me plenty to start on. Thanks

Thank you for your time and effort in putting this together. We have about 4 acres in newly planted fruit (spring 2020) and I’m sure we will refer to this again. We enjoy all your video, we greatly enjoyed the fall 2019 tour and find you an inspiration to up and coming fruit farmers.

Thank you so much for the virtual tour! It gives me hope. Having tried for years to grow fruit trees on my property without success, I finally decided to take an online course in growing fruit trees from Cornell University. I was horrified by the amount of spraying they said was necessary, even in an organic orchard! I knew there had to be a better way. About the same time, I discovered the permaculture orchard. I have always liked the idea of working WITH nature, not against it. I am planting my first 2 trios this spring, and trusting the permaculture process.

I found this course both sharp and fun. I watched the whole content in 2 days and will watch again. Some videos cut abruptly at the end, which is not a problem to enjoy the videos but can be improved for future ones. Thanks for the valuable content and thansk for sharing.

I made it through the course and really enjoyed the first time around! However, I plan to review it frequently until it becomes second nature for me. This course is just what I needed! It details some very valuable techniques on how to minimize cutting and make our moves count - and it's communicated so clearly and concisely. Those tricks to minimal pruning are why I just instantly knew that I would buy the full course when I heard about it.

Wow! The pruning course, and all the little included extras, is great. I have a little over 100 fruit and nut trees growing at my house and I have been pruning them for years. I wish I had learned everything Stefan offers in this course years ago. There is something for everyone from the novice to the seasoned pro. As always, the production quality is great and Stefan is a great teacher. I highly recommend the pruning course if you ever plan on pruning a productive tree.

Nice little online course about pruning fruit trees, many useful tips and techniques, lot of questions answered, but at least for me more questions raised, because I still want to know more...
