Final pruning in the orchard

Farmer Al wanted to share these before and after photos of his hard work pruning in the orchard, helping the trees to produce the sweetest, largest and most numerous fruit for us this season! Al has close to 100 trees so he works steadily, pruning a tree a day as soon as the leaves are off to get the job done.

Tree before pruning:

Note the many vertical (non-fruiting) branches.
