Tree being pruned

Shadow of the Apple Tree in Kent can supply and plant new trees. New trees often require formative pruning to develop a good structure early in their life and thus to avoid the development of large problems in future, such as "co-dominant stems".

PLANTING & FORMATIVE PRUNING

HELPING YOUNG TREES THROUGHOUT KENT TO GROW STRONG

Training your tree

Formative pruning is usually carried out before a tree is a year old to encourage healthy growth right from the outset. Ensuring a tree grows strong is imperative to its later life.

When to prune

When to prune generally depends on when you planted your tree, but is mostly needed before the tree is 4 years old. It's also easier to do in the winter when the tree has lost its leaves as it is easier to focus on your branches.
