time required to prune trees slide

The first three prunings do not take a great deal of time to perform. The second pruning in the second year in hardiness zone 8 and 9 takes much more time than the other prunings. This represents the time it takes to set the structure in the permanent canopy. Once this structure is set, subsequent prunings take less time.
