I have some producing female trees on my hunting property and would like to know if I can help them out for next year and years to come. Any recommendations, like fertilizer (all or only females), lime, or pruning other trees out around them, etc?
"Thanks" Sky

i have always heard that if you fertilize oaks that it will make the acorns sweeter and the deer love them. should work on persimmon.

Old wive's tail. Fertilizing a fruit tree at the wrong time can actually make it dump it's fruit.

Removing comnpetition from surrounding trees will help.
