Kentucky Color - The Art of Pruning

Click on headline for Kentucky Color with photo(s)

By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry

Pruning done correctly should be neat, fresh, natural and undetectable. Similar to a fine haircut in that the appearance is enhanced because the overall ambiance is neater, fresher, and more natural but the observer should not be able to discover that a haircut is the catalyst.

Looking at the before and after photos of our 18 year old, Weeping Snowball Crabapple reveal a neater, cleaner setting but looking at the after photo only does not reveal that a pruning has taken place. - Billy Joe Fudge
