Pruning High-Density Apples - Corrective Cuts for Rejuvenating an Orchard
From Anna Wallis
This video provides instruction on pruning high density apples in need of rejuvenation. Orchards can fall out of optimal condition in terms of tree vigor, fruit production, and quality due to missed dormant pruning, inadequate fertility, uneven crop load management, and many other factors. Here we receive guidance from Phil Schwallier, retired MSU Extension tree fruit specialist, on some pruning techniques and management strategies to bring these types of blocks back into excellent condition. Thank you to Tye Wittenbach for letting us film at the LTI Ag Research farm in Kent City, MI.
