I planted my first fruit tree orchard when I was in my 20's back in the 1970's. Fortunately I bought this book for $2.98. I had NO idea how to prune, but by taking this little book out to my orchard and following the simple directions - one by one I pruned all my trees perfectly every year. It is very simple to understand and follow with great illustrations. I still use it today - more than 30 years later. It is the only pruning book I have or need.

This shouldn't be your only pruning book, but it is likely the one you'll refer to most. This book simplifies what other books complicate. It has a small amount of text paired with line drawings that help break pruning tasks down into something you can understand easily. I also like Pruning and Training by Brickell and Joyce.

Format: Paperback
As other reviews write, it is certainly a humble book. The section on the training of young trees (a mere 2 1/2 pages) is concise, easy to follow, and copied by many newer authors. You can find thicker books with more pictures and more discussion, but still, no improvement. Available from: Martin Bio-Products, Burbank CA. Carried by many nurseries, incl. Walter Andersen in San Diego, CA.

As everyone points out, this book is a classic. If you don't feel like paying the big dollars via market place, you can buy this book at a reasonable price from Bountiful Gardens online; it's currently $8.95.

Format: Paperback
Anyone who prunes fruit trees knows this to be the "Bible" of pruning. I keep it in my pocket as I prune each year, and the steps to early-year pruning are perfect. I am curious, however, why this (formerly) six dollar, 90 page paperback has jumped to forty + dollars in recent years. Anyone know why?

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The title is misleading, this book is a VERY broad summary on the topic, not especially helpful as a guide. Also the pruning techniques are out of date (i.e. painting of pruning cuts and pruning flush to trunk).

Small basic book. To be honest I purchased based on the front cover graphics. I was expecting so much more. For two or three dollars it would be okay. Very overpriced.
