Mature Pruning of Tall Spindle Limit height of tree by cutting leader to a fruitful side branch at optimum tree height ( X row spacing). Remove branches per year >3/4 inch diameter or that are longer than 3’ (2 cut rule). From: T. Robinson, GLFWFile Size: 2MB. Apr 01, The main objective of this research was to develop a machine vision system to identify branches in tall spindle apple trees that need to be pruned to achieve a desired level of pruning.
A time-of-flight-of-light-based 3D camera was used to acquire 3D images and a thinning algorithm was used to compute skeletons of apple bushlopping.club by: Mar 09, Time to prune these tall spindle apple trees growing on the backyard trellis. Time to prune these tall spindle apple trees growing on the backyard bushlopping.clubg: Daphne AL. In higher density planting systems like tall-spindle (2, plus trees per HA), there is greater need for detailed pruning and management of the trees.
But for the sake of time we will just discuss important general rules of pruning as they apply to all orchard densities. For discussion on how to prune and manage tall spindle systems see:Missing: Daphne AL. trends led to the development of the Tall Spindle Tree with a tree diameter of ft (90cmm), a tree height of 10 ft (3m) and a density between 1, and 1, trees/ acre.
Characteristics of the Tall Spindle System Tree DensityTree density with Tall Spindle orchards can vary from a high of trees/acre (3’ x 10’) to a low of Missing: Daphne AL.

I'm wondering if anyone has experience in pruning tall spindle whips that are just entering year two. When we set out to establish a 1/2 acre tall spindle orchard, we didn't realize Maxcel is generally sprayed on unpruned non-feathered whips to get them to feather (no heading required)--I'm wondering how feathering could be achieved bushlopping.clubg: Daphne AL.
