Finally pulled out the clippers, loppers and saw today and pruned all of my 14 trees. I hacked back the Montmorency Cherry, as it has not had fruit to mention since it went in 6 years ago. I left all the branches on that had five bud clusters but removed the rest.
Every tree needed serious pruning, as for the first three years of owning these trees I was basically terrifed of pruning. I remember Harvestman telling us (more than once) we usually do not prune enough! Boy I hope he's right. My trees can grow new shoots that are five feet tall in a summer. Well, they're gone now. Will start spraying tomorrow. I want to keep my trees no taller than 9'. Mrs. G
