Questions we get asked...
Q. When is the best time to prune my fruit tree?
A. The best time to prune a fruit tree is during their dormant season, which is usually between the months of October
through to February. This is when the leaves have fallen off the trees and when birds have flown their nests. We try
not to disturb any wildlife. Essentially, it doesn't interfere with the fruit growth and crop.
Q. How do I know if my tree is diseased?
A. Trees can suffer from various diseases,some specific to certain species. A common sign is leaf curl and insect
colony. You can see 'Die Back' when the tree literally dies back from the outer twigs and foliage and works its
way down the tree. Old and dead wood can be removed leaving the tree in a healthier state. Around 80% of trees
recover after selective pruning.

can help apply to the council and make all relevant enquiries as we have an established relationship with the local
