Pruning Pear Tree

Thank you, did not know that. Is that for mature trees or any that is taller than X?

Wow, not sure I’m brave enough to whack the top off, although I did something similar to an apple tree and it’s doing really well.

If I did top it would I use a straight cut or angled?

For standard training of pit and pome fruit trees.

BTW, it’s your option to mix and match my suggested cuts with others mentioned here but I don’t recommend it.

Almost flat but not quite…just a little higher on the side having the bud you’ve chosen closest to the top that you hope to make the next Leader. (And do it a half inch or 3/4 above the bud you’ve chosen).

Good luck
