Tree Pruning

Carry out winter pruning of Apple Trees and Pear Trees if you haven't already done so. Always use a sharp, clean pair of Secateurs and begin by removing any branches that cross or are rubbing.

Look for any that are weak, dead, diseased or damaged. Branches that are growing into the centre of the tree can also be removed to allow light and airflow through the branches of your Fruit Trees.

Reduce the height and spread of any branches that have grown too large by cutting them back to strong a vigorous lower branch.
