Winter is the best time to prune most fruit trees because they’re dormant and you can see the tree structure. Proper pruning technique allows your trees to produce the best fruit and helps develop healthy limb structure. This presentation will discuss the why, how, and when of pruning for best structure and fruit production, including how to keep trees small enough to make maintenance and harvesting ladder-free.
