Here we show some restorative tree work, pruning an apple tree. We did this in winter when it was dormant. Over time apple trees can become overly congested.

We have thinned the tree’s canopy by pruning back to significant branches, maintaining a natural shape. As a result the tree will be lighter and healthier and produce better fruit.

In the after photo on the right you can see the cuttings piled on the grass ready for us to move to the van.

Ideally, apple trees should be pruned every year to remove unproductive water shoots.

If you’ve liked our work pruning this apple tree, and would like to discuss how we can help with your trees, hedges, shrubs or climbing plants, please get in touch.
