Orchard Pruning

A small Glen Ellen, CA vineyard and orchard required an early March visit from Wildwood.

The owners planted pears and apples forty years ago.  These old trees have been kept relatively low over the years.  This requires constant attention to maintain their height. 

An aggressive Spring tree pruning coupled with lighter summer snips prevents branches from breaking under the weight of fruit and allows easy access to all parts of the tree for harvest!
