Fruit tree pruning


Today’s job was fruit tree pruning. In the garden we have 6 apple trees, 2 plum trees and 1 gooseberry tree thst all needed pruning today. ( we have other fruit trees too)


We do this job with the 2.5 meter tall tripod ladde show above and cut with secateurs or loppers. We use a small step ladder for the smaller trees too.

Above is a before and after of a tree pruned. They have to be pruned st this time of year so the branches don’t obscure the apples so with no branches the apples will ripen better. It also smartened up the trees. All the apples from the 6 trees go to make our own apple juce.
