Pruning Peach Trees – Late Pruning

Of all species, peaches can be pruned the most during the growing season.  A complete pruning after harvest can put energy into the shoots that will give fruit the following year.  Getting light on new wood (hence the need for an open center) is very important for peaches and will keep those areas productive for a much longer time.

This information came from local grower Mark Wessel via his friend Alan Haigh, an orchardist in the NY area.
