trees growing in #45 containers

Here is the same demonstration described in the last photo but for trees growing in #45 containers. The results described in the following pages were similar for trees growing in both production methods. All trees described in the following pages were pruned similarly above 5 feet from the soil surface. In other words, the treatments were applied only to branches in the lower 5 feet of the tree. The next photos show each of the methods.
