Drawing simple pruning apple (low strain)


1.Stam (At low strain 40-70 cm long)
2.gesteltakken, carrying branches (branches or fruit), 3.Vruchthout,

6.Steil growing branches,
7.Horizontaal growing fruit wood to the leaders,
8.Vruchthout overlooks from fishbone,
9.Rugtwijgen (on top of the branches),
10.Buikhout (bottom of the branches),

11.Snoeien with foot,

12.Snoeien on foot (= directed stub) (New fruiting desired),

13.Horizontaal bending fruit twigs (concrete block),

14.Terugsnoeien too long branch,

15.Terugsnoeien hanging fruit wood,

16.Opslag of the rootstock,

E: graft (10-20 cm above the ground surface)
O.: rootstock
H: central leader

Prune away:
Storage of wild rootstock

- Competitors of extension events

- Too steep implanted or branches.

- Too long fructification pruning back to lower standing against a short twig.

- Depending fruiting wood (wood abdomen)

- Twigs and branches at the top of the branches grow (Rughout)

- Intersecting and abrasive branches

- Leaves affected by canker

- Branches of less than 50 cm are on the trunk or central leader.

- A branch at the top of the tree that is thicker than a branch below. (-> Pruning "on foot")

- Pursue a pyramidal tree shape after which the lower branches enough light.

- A low pedigree too high, it can be pruned to a vruchttak lower state. (For example, a tree of 3 meters can be cut back to a side branch that 2 m above the ground)

NOT insnoeien:

- Extension of Nissen (growing) laterals

- Strong year old twigs to frame or fruiting branches grow.

Thinning pruning:

- Numerous short twigs of 2-20 cm long (Part preserve -> ideal fruiting wood that will bear fruit)


- Twigs of 20-40 cm to the side of the branches which grow vertically.

- Gestel Leaves and fruit tree that does not grow horizontally. (Do this bend especially in hot weather: from April to August). Before you can bend concrete blocks or rope.

Up binding:

- A weak growing gesteltak bottom of the tree that is deeper than a horizontal position

Pruning fruit trees. Additional boom parts i.v.m. pruning in apple and pear:


1. Rootstock
2. Graft / entknobbel (Vvorm a horse knee)
3. Between Tribe (Such a tree is grafted twice)
4. Storage, storage of wild rootstock
5. Central leader
6. Context or frame (lower laterals + central leader)
7. Herringbone (View of fruiting wood to gesteltak)
8. Fruit Wood (Short branches with flower buds)
9. Head (upper part of a tree)
10. Pants (between central leader and gesteltak, where little sunlight coming)
11. Trace (very short fruiting wood of 1-5 cm)
12. Stekeltwijgje (Short fruiting wood of 6-9 cm long)
13. Ordinary vruchttwijg (brendil) 10-20 (30) cm
14. Greedy twig: 60 cm length (usually useless)
15. Verlengenis
16. Yoke or vergaffeling (Gesteltak seems to split)
17. Competitor (usually to remove)
18. Worn wood (Back Pruning or shortening)
19. Kattenrug (Improper bent twig)
20. Rugtwijg (usually to remove)
21. Buiktwijg / belly wood (usually to remove)
22. Flower bud / bloembot (Remarkably thick buds from which flowers and leaves. Sitting usually on short twigs) 23. Leaf Button (Narrow pointed buds with leaves)
24. Stomp (Remains after a road saws gesteltak or thick fruit wood top. This shall steeply growing rugtwijgen) 25. Targeted stub (Is narrow top and wide bottom. Below arise some weak fruit twigs)
26. Strain (At low strain about 50 cm long)
27. Gesteltak (Must be at low strain apples grow almost horizontally. Is filled with fruit wood herringbone shape.)
28. End Button (This cut away the growth stimulated)
29. Sleeping eye (Lower, almost invisible leaf buds on a twig)

  1. Wow, this surprisingly a very accurate guide to how to prune a tree. Very well done!
