Pruning is an art as well as a skill…. It is about learning to read individual trees as well as understanding the principles involved. Murray is a very experienced expert pruner and a day spent with Murray and Ben will be amazing for those of you who learn better in action than from a book.

They will take you through how to prune new trees older trees and all the different kinds of trees, and you will get to do it all. 

Recommended Book: How To Prune Fruit Trees by Sanford Martin.  This is the only pruning book that we recommend. Heaps of information and simple to follow. A copy is invaluable for home orchardists.
