Pruning Young Pecan Tree Videos

This time of year I am swamped with requests to do pruning clinics and make orchard visits to show growers how to prune pecan trees. With all the young trees planted in our state, there is quite a demand for this. Since I can’t be everywhere at once, perhaps these videos will help. Click on the title to view videos:

Trees going into the second year of production

Trees going into the 3rd year of production (Same rules apply for 4 year old trees)

 

Trees that should have been pruned a long time ago

 

I apologize for the audio quality  (adjust your volume accordingly) and a little graininess but this was shot with a smart phone and done quickly to try to get it out to you during pruning season. I hope it helps.
