How To Handle Pruning For Fruit Trees
Our staff always recommend pruning fruit trees during the dormant season. This means getting to work when all of the leaves are gone. We actually have a much clearer vision of what may need to be trimmed so that everything grows properly once spring comes around.
There are reasons we don’t recommend pruning fruit trees in the spring or summer. During these months, fruit trees are ripe for production. Pruning will most definitely slow down production, kill areas of growth and exposes healthy fruit to sun-burn.
