Corona Tools for Summer Pruning Fruit TreesIt's the fifth Tuesday of July and #Treechat welcomes Stark Bro's Nurseries on the special topic of Summer Pruning. Summer pruning or “off-season” pruning of stone fruit trees in July and August has several roles in the home orchard.  In addition to damage repair, summer pruning (also known as pinching) encourages husky growth in vigorously growing trees, and eliminates weak, leggy growth. Manage the overall size of your trees, especially dwarf trees, by pinching back tender new branches that have elongated too much. That's our topic on #Treechat.
