Fruit Tree Pruning Techniques Explained

Fruit Tree Pruning Techniques Explained | Image Tree Service

Fruit tree pruning techniques are used to control growth, remove dead or diseased wood and stimulate the formation of flowers and fruit buds. This involves cutting branches back and removing smaller limbs entirely, in some cases. It may also mean removal of young shoots, buds, leaves, etc. Careful attention to pruning and training young trees affects their later productivity and longevity. Good pruning and training can also prevent later injury from weak crotches (where a tree trunk splits into two or more branches) that break from the weight of fruit, snow, or ice on the branches.
