Consistent pruning reinvigorates tired wood, maintains your tree’s size and shape, and enhances the penetration of light and air leading to better tasting fruit (higher sugars and aromatics). Pruning also stimulates the formation of flowering buds and fruiting spurs and is a primary method for removing disease before it becomes widespread.
A multi-year approach to rejuvenating trees that are older, overgrown, damaged, or significantly neglected. Fruit trees have long lives and most elder trees have experienced periods of neglect or inconsistent care. We specialize in multi-year fruit tree restoration that aims to reinvigorate your tree, extend its life and get it to a place where it can be easily maintained with some basic annual maintenance.
