Pear trees will always want to shoot for the stars.



Pruning apple and pear trees to espalier or palmette is an interesting way to raise fruit productivity for apples and pears, and also to cover a wall. Pruning following an espalier silhouette is easy, but it requires careful attention and regular follow-up to guide your apple tree and pear tree accordingly.

I have a row of 5 beautiful espalier apple trees (Jonagold, Granny Smith and Gravenstein) that are about 4 years old, and they put out huge amounts of growth over the summer. I've been pruning the first growth back in late June, but when should I prune the growth from the rest of the summer?Missing: Satellite Beach.



Usually these forms are trained along a wall to which a lattice or treillis was affixed for easy tying.



Hi Kath, espalier trees benefit from summer pruning and winter pruning. In summer if you cut back the long branches that shoot up, a fruiting spur should appear and so cut back above the fruiting spur. Vegetative growth are long skinny branches, fruiting spurs are shorter fatter stubby branches. Prune to maintain shape.



Angle your cut so that it slants away from the leaf - but ideally points away from the tree so that the water runs away from the leaf and the tree.

These old apple espaliers perfectly illustrate the techniques and pitfalls when maintaining trained fruit trees, whether espaliers, cordons or whatever shape takes your fancy.
