March 4, 2009 – Tree Pruning

It seems like the fruit tree pruning time has snuck up on me this year. It’s just been so cold, I haven’t been able to get out.I always think I should be able to get it done in one day – but I keep planting more trees and they keep growing, so it is more than a one day job – besides, the hand begins to hurt after a few hours of pruning and sawing.

Here’s a peach tree before the pruners take to the limbs.

And the tree after its annual haircut.  Looking at it now, I see a couple more cuts I need to make!
