Three Fruit Trees had to go.

It broke my heart but I had to remove three fruit trees. They were suckering so badly that it was sucking the life out of the garden. It was my two precious Japanese plums and the Rainier Cherry. I truly appreciated my Samurai pruning saw today. It cuts through tree trunks like butter!! I highly recommend it.

Here are the before photos

A tough, wise, professional decision. But it had to hurt.

I am sad to read this. I know how you loved those trees when you put them in.

It was emotionally brutal I must admit. But the upside is I still have 14 fruit trees. Apples, figs, peaches, lemon, lime and orange. Those Shiro plums though...they were so good. I did so much work in the garden yesterday I have two more posts to go up this week.
