California Avocado Commission to Host Pine Tree Ranch Grower Open-House

  • Oct 01, 2020

Pine Tree Ranch has many projects progressing this year and, due to COVID-19, we have been unable to hold our usual meetings. On October 15, the California Avocado Commission is hosting an Open House for members of the avocado industry. Visitors can take a walk around the ranch and check in on fall flush, fruit sizing, tree growth, and research project progression. There will be no formal program.

The Pine Tree Ranch region hit 117 °F with the recent heat wave and the trees came through with minimal damage, but visitors can be the judge. Danny Klittich with Redox will be there to answer questions concerning fertility programs, Doug O’Hara with Somis Pacific will be there to answer questions about ranch management, and Dr. Tim Spann from the Commission will be there to discuss on-going research plots with visitors.

Thursday October 15, 2020
9:00 am — 1:00 pm
Pine Tree Ranch
19455 East Telegraph Road
Santa Paula, CA 93060

Please note that to comply with COVID-19 social distancing requirements this event requires an RSVP. A maximum of five visitors will be allowed per 30-minute time slot beginning at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 1:00 p.m. Please email Tim Spann at to reserve your time slot. Time slots will be available on a first come, first served basis. We appreciate your cooperation during these unusual times as we strive to continue to provide outreach to the California avocado grower community.
