Annual and biennial mechanical pruning of hedgerow English walnuts

Annual and biennial mechanical pruning of hedgerow English walnuts

Acta Horticulturae ( 322): 135-139

Annual and biennial mechanical pruning of hedgerows of Chico walnut were compared with hand-pruned standard trees over a 6-year period. Yields were greater from hedgerows pruned annually on one side than from those hedged annually on both sides or from hand-pruned trees. Yields from biennially hedged trees fluctuated widely, with greater yields than alternate-side hedging in the years when they were not pruned but lower yields in the years following pruning.
