The pear has just ben pruned back...had to do it, as the apex still grow a lot stronger than the lower branches.


The tree is very healthy, and the backside that used to be a kind of weak, is now doing very well...
During winter will there be some more carving to do on the backside in the apex...must be a day my husband is home to help me, as he will have to hold the vaccumcleaner close, as I carve...sawdust ruin the bark.


The hawthorn is ballanced in the branches, ( all new growth has the same lengd ) and is being left to grow like a crazy as long as it do as I want it to Smile
My design-ballance- issue may go away now, as the tree seem to find the way by it self...closing up from the left side...I will stick to the direction.

Kind regards Yvonne

Its growing strongly, good stuff.
are you now just letting everything coming off the primary branches to grow out, but pruning off the unwanted buds that pop anywhere else that dont fit in the design?
Im doing this with one of mine atm
I know some say just let everything grow and cut back later, but i dont see the point in letting unwanted shoots grow that take away from the chosen primary branches. the chosen primary branches thicken and grow much quicker when you prune off the adventitious shoots right?

Hi Bobby

I see your point, and I have had thoughts about that.... It is basicly what I do, but do it slower and faster at the same time, if you look at the previus photo, the tree without leaves...Can you see I am working on mainbranches...ehh maybe...not easy to see yet, but I do...

This year have I on the upper part of the tree removed any branch that grow dawnwards, but kept them on the lower branches, this will make the lower branches stronger than the topbranches.

I let all branches grow for now, as they are controled after all, but if I detect problems, will I do something else, depending on the problem.

By keepeing all branches growing here and there, will the branch become thicker faster, and the taper in the branches better. During winter will I prune the branches, and leave some of them for mainbranches....It is a quit fat tree, and to not let the mainbranches devide now and then, will give to few mainbranches for the tree.
My goal is, that they with time will be more dominant in the design, and also much more visible during summer...I am taking it one step at the time, and am avare of the "problem".

Kind regards Yvonne

Ok, yes i could see what you did in the previous pic, i like the way you have everything rising up too, its going to be an imposing tree once everything thickens up, i look forward to its progress. Cool
