Pruning Pear Trees

In this video we’re going to have a look at the way to prune pear trees.

Each variety of pear will have different variations on the Solaxe theme. If you haven’t watched the movie on the Solaxe tree shape, have a look at it first. It’s in the Pruning section of the website.

Each variety of pear tree has it’s own idiosycrasy’s.

While the structural limb treatment is the same for all pear varieties, the bearing wood is treated differently.

Please note that all of our pruning programmes are designed to give the general theory related to the pruning activity. Please adapt the information to your own situation and consult a consultant to advise you in your orchard if you have further queries.
