We have moved into a house that has two large pear trees that yield lots of fruit, but have not been pruned in many years. What is the proper way to do this?

We just bought a home that had to be refurbished, inside and outside. We have two big old pear trees. The pears are small and discolored. At the top they're bigger, but too high to get. Can the trees be topped out?

Pruning a Pear Tree

Prune away any broken or diseased branches any time of the year. It's important to get these off and away from your tree so that they don't sap nutrients from the tree.

Wait until just before spring to do any major pruning. Make sure you have the right pruning shears for the job. You should have a couple different sizes of shears at your disposal. Do not prune if the tree has any new growth on it wait till after the fruit is made and gone. Good luck. (03/18/2010)
