Walnut thin

When it comes to prunes I would like to say less is more. I rather spend some extra time to climb to the tip of the branch then take to much off. But often the clients are pushing for more to come off. I don’t know how many times I have said the word watershoots, or dieback. But I can’t let go of the thought that nature knows better what it does then I do. Trees been around for a while, humans, not so long.

Ok less talk, more action. I did this walnut thin and reduction today. I think it might would have been better to chose between either thin or crown clean. Would be intereting to see the reaction to this prune.

There where also a prune of a maple, kind of same thing. (Did that one with my colluege that is a bit, more is more.) Shape got a bit more rounded after all.
