Considering the job an arborist does they are way underpaid. Many orchardists like to prune in the spring after the tree has started leafing out because at that time they can see (and remove) the branches that did not survive the winter. This is especially true for those who grow tender fruit trees, like peach trees or apricots.
Thank you for the tips on pruning trees. There are some trees in my yard that are needing to be pruned. I'll have to look into finding the best arborist in our area.
My trees are always happier and bare for fruit after being pruned properly!
Fine tree care, consulting, and land management
