    The Importance Of Proper Pruning Of Trees

    Great article ... only two things to add - always think safety before pruning anything. And always take you time. I see so many branches being hacked off with impatience so leave long term damage.

    Pruning an Apple tree that has bent for some reason

    Looks like the weight of the fruit bent it. I wouldn't bother trying to straighten it, just cut it back by 2 thirds :)

    Old Olive Trees in Pots

    Today I picked about 120 small olives from my two young trees, enough to fill a jam jar. I’m going to process them and hopefully they’ll be ready to eat by around Christmas.

    Man films a tree for a year.

    Järvzoo is further away from Stockholm than that. Around 400km or say 4-5 hours driving. The one I mentioned is about a 1,5 hours drive from Copenhagen airport.
