Fruit tree pruning is the cutting and removing of parts of a fruit tree.
It covers a number of horticultural techniques that control growth..
Pruning often means cutting branches back, sometimes removing smaller limbs entirely. It may also mean removal of young shoots, buds, leaves, etc.
Careful attention to pruning and training young trees affects their later productivity and longevity.
Good pruning and training can also prevent later injury.
John 15:2 KJV
…and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
