Stanton St Bernard apple tree pruning

Apple Pruning beforeRichard was in Stanton St Bernard this week pruning apple trees.

This tree had not been pruned for many years so excess branches were removed from the centre and edges and next year it will have a “haircut ” to control the height and off shoots Too much this year would have shocked the tree too much. There is also a rose growing up through the tree that needed to retain its support. Above is the before photo, below the after.
