Pruning Fruit Trees

Keep your trees productive, healthy and looking good by pruning fruit trees

We are experienced in pruning fruit trees of all types from a bush tree, an overgrown tree or a shaped fruit tree.  It is a practice that requires extensive time and patience to achieve a healthy and productive tree.  Dead, dying or diseased branches are removed and crossing and rubbing branches to allow more light in to encourage more vigorous growth.  Old, neglected trees are often vigorous and very large, with the fruit out of reach, these sometimes need to be rejuvenated over two to three seasons.  We can always offer advice on the ongoing care of your fruit trees once we have carried out the work in order for you to get the best out of your tree.

We leave all sites tidy and can remove all debris.

Recommendations for the best pruning practices:

Fruit trees that are free standing or bush trees, such as those grown in an orchard should be pruned when they’re dormant, in winter.

Trained trees, such as espaliers, cordons, pyramids and fans should be pruned in late August or early September.
