Pruning at la Food Forest

To increase yield and grow stronger fruit trees we are pruning our trees.


Prune your plants a lot more frequently during droughts. Even if the plant is completely healthy, try and prune it back by about a third. Cutting it back will mean that it will not need as much water, allowing the plant to live longer on less water. Large Canopy Trees and shrubs should generally be exempt from pruning because their canopies are what keep them cool during the hot days. If you were to prune them, they would become more stressed and damaged from the dry, hot air.
