Maintaining My Almond Trees

It’s time to prune the almond trees!

If you grow almond trees, the best time to prune them is now - in winter - when the trees are dormant. Pruning not only helps to develop proper shape and form, but also encourages new growth, promotes high fruit yield, and maintains good tree health. At my Bedford, New York farm, we spend a lot of time maintaining the many, many trees - pruning their branches, limbing them up, and improving their shape at least once a year. Last week, my outdoor grounds crew tackled the two almond trees located just outside my main greenhouse.
