Fruit tree pruning workshop – shared results
This approximately 4 year old Macadamia tree was pruned by workshop tutor Ken during the recent MEVP pruning workshop. Cutting out the central leader was probably perceived as totally butchering the tree not just by its gasping owners but by every single participant of the workshop.
3 month later, the tree shows extraordinary signs of health and vigour with its first ever catkins everywhere and in particular inside the now light-penetrated crown.
If one has ever hesitated to prune out the central leader – here is the evidence, it is working well in favour of the tree and the nut saviours of the future.
