Peach Tree and Blueberry Bush Maintenance

Pruning is performed every winter on our farm to improve the health and productivity of our fruit trees and bushes.

Why do we prune peach trees and blueberry bushes?

increase sunlight availability

discard diseased and old limbs

thin limbs to increase fruit size and quality

maintain plant height and canopy size/shape for fruit production

establish plant shape for future growth (for young trees/bushes)
