How does pruning a fruit tree help production?

In theory, pruning reduces the size of a tree by removing portions of the trunk or branches. This can affect how much fruit it bears and the fruit size it bears.

I recently watched a video about pruning apple trees. The person who showed the video pruned apple trees and said that pruning reduces production. I'm interested in knowing how this is possible.

how much does the size of the tree have to do with the size of the fruit produced, how much is the size of the fruit, and how much is the size of the tree to do with production?

Re: How does pruning a fruit tree help production?

From your question, I would assume you're talking about the size of the tree and the size of the fruit.

Pruning increases a tree's yield for the year. The tree's production depends on the number of buds, which are sprouted in the winter and then grow throughout the year. If you cut back the main trunk, you take away more growing buds, reducing the total number of buds throughout the entire year.

So, if you prune off a bunch of branching from a fruit tree, you'll reduce the size of the tree. However, the size of the tree has nothing to do with the size of the fruit.

The more leaves a plant has, the more fruit it will produce. The smaller the size of the tree, the fewer leaves you'll see.

As for how much each individual fruit on a tree is, well, there are many variables. I'm sure that you have some that are larger than others. The growth process is dependent on many things, including the weather, soil, fertilizer, watering schedule, the shape of the fruit and the exposure to sun.

The size of the tree does play a part in the size of the fruit, but all of the variables I've mentioned are independent of the size of the tree. If you cut back half the limbs on a tree, the tree will still grow the same amount. You simply get less fruit on the branches.

If you think about it, a fruit tree doesn't produce fruit until the fruit reaches the full size it's supposed to be. The amount of produce that's produced in any given year is based on the number of buds, which are sprouted in the winter. All of the buds are what's referred to as "pods" and what will grow into the fruits. If you cut off a bunch of branches, you take away some of the buds that could have grown into fruits. It's just a matter of how many fruits you can actually get.

So, if you cut back half of the limbs on your fruit tree, you will not get half as much fruit. But you'll still get more fruit than you did the previous year. As I said before, the size of the tree has nothing to do with the size of the fruit, only the size of the fruit has to do with the size of the tree.

You can see the size of the fruit by touching it. That's all you need to know.

If you can find a tree that has the exact same shape and size, but half as much produce, that would help, but I think the size of the fruit would just make more sense.

Re: How does pruning a fruit tree help production?

Interesting question, but I can see where your confusion is.

No one prunes a fruit tree for "production".

When pruning, the general goal is "to produce a more attractive tree"

The big mistake people make is to prune too much.
