Annual maintenance pruning on younger fruit trees is best done when trees are dormant; here in northern Nevada that’s mid-December to mid-March. Peaches and nectarines are best pruned just before blooming in March and April. Summer or fall pruning may be done to manage tree size and to restore older, neglected trees. Summer pruning is usually done after fruiting. I provide pruning services for fruit trees in the Reno area and I give lessons on how to prune-your-own trees.
I have a $60 minimum and will give you an free estimate before starting work.
If you want to learn to prune your own trees and want to build your confidence by working alongside me, I’ll be happy to teach you. If you like, get together with a neighbor or two and we’ll do all your trees together. Lessons are $60 per hour.
