Year One Pruning at Whitmore

These are pics of first pruning of one year old patch of almond trees at Whitmore ranch. They keep the strongest three limbs and cut away the others. These are also called "thinning cuts." They are used to open up and thin out canopies and control tree height. Thinning cuts, by reducing wood, reduce competition for nutrients and result in overall invigoration of remaining wood.
