Why so serious?

I continued with the winter pruning of the fruit trees.


A rather scary looking candidate. A very old apple tree that lost its crown in a storm. The trunk is hollow but it won’t give up. So the new crown did get a bit messy because no one had the time to  give him a proper haircut the last few years.


I have given my best, but it is still a mess. At least there is some air between the branches again and there is hope to get a better branch structure with the next winter pruning ( or summer).


Note to myself: Get a new pruning saw!
