About :

Retired UT extension agent Mike Dennison prunes two nectarine trees. The first one is young. Mike demonstrated how to give the tree its first pruning and open up the center. He cuts the central leader just above the first set of scaffold limbs. This cut will drastically reduce fruit production for the first few years but will shape the tree and make it more productive in the long run. The second tree is about ten years old and is much larger. Mike cuts several large limbs off of the tree in order to open up access to the center of the tree to help in spraying, thinning, and picking later in the year. He also removes any dead or damaged branches, hanger-downers” or branches below the waist, and crossing branches. He removes water sprouts or branches that are growing straight up which do not produce fruit and take nutrients from the tree. He prunes off branches that are above the height he can reach from the ground. For safety reasons he does not want to have to use a ladder to maintain the tree. Finally he thins out the small twigs to make the tree less congested. The tree will see reduced production this year but will be much better off in the long run.

That was fabulous thank you!!
We have an old Asian Pear 🍐 tree 🌳 we discovered on the property and it’s grown mostly vertical. But, at the center of the tree everything has grown mostly horizontal. The tallest point of the tree must be 15+ feet tall. We couldn’t even begin to collect all the pears 🍐 because, of its height. This video is perfect thank you so much. ♥️

Help! My prune tree that's been yielding lots of fruits just got knocked off by strong winter storm and I don't know what to do. It's a bit heavy so it's been sitting like that and what steps I need to take to bring it back to life. Any direction would be appreciated.

This guy claims that anvil loppers do "damage" to the limbs but when you look at his technique at 3:48 you can see that he is using his bypass loppers the wrong way around with the clean cut side on the waste wood that is being remove.
Anvil pruners are effective. Try them for yourself, don't listen to this guy.
