My favorite tree to prune: ever - a Mt. Fuji. What's yours?
Its rare that I make a page for a single plant, but I made one for a Mt. Fuji flowering cherry tree in Wilsonville, Oregon, which was my all-time favorite tree to prune over a 25 year span of time. I always looked forward to training this one each year. Someone from the Brookings Harbor garden club emailed me this week, and I a photo to reply back - may as well put the image to good use.
I believe that limited irrigation and proper pruning was the key to this tree's abundant growth. Many references list 25' as the width for this tree. That's another reason I posted the page on the internet - so that people can realize the full potential.
Everybody must have a favorite single plant or tree to prune, or a favorite genus to prune. What's you favorite tree to prune (all-time favorite)?
