New shoots coming up from underground, near to the trunk, should also be dealt with.

Jul 06, When cutting any weeping tree, always cut out the"underneath" growth, leaving a branch or twig that is"springing" up in the right direction. Here's a photo showing a branch that has been poorly pruned: the owner just wanted to make it shorter (it's a full-size weeping pear, not a miniature one) so they cut off the branch at random, leaving an ugly stump and a down-ward growing Rachel The Gardener.

July to August. These trees are deciduous, so homeowners should expect the trees to drop their leaves in late fall. Pears tend to be relatively pest and disease free but homeowners should monitor for leaf spot and fire blight. Fire blight will cause branches to turn brown very quickly and these should be pruned from the tree as soon as possible.

Sep 21, Prune branches that touch the ground. Use pruning shears to cut next to one of the buds. This will shorten the length of the branch. You can also cut it at the joint it shares with the trunk. Look through the tree's canopy for branches that are not weeping. Prune off lateral branches higher on the trunk with short- and long-handled pruning shears, depending on the height of the branch. The goal is to leave lateral branches spaced 10 inches apart, thinning the canopy of the tree.

The remaining branches will be more resistant to snow and ice damage and promote a strong framework for the tree's growth. Pruning Pear Trees. Pear trees have an upward growth habit. Trees can grow as large as 30 feet tall and 10+ feet wide. A tree this large can make harvesting fruit difficult. I recommend pruning your tree in the fall, when your tree is dormant. In the first year of growth, the Migardener recommends pulling all flowers off.

This stops the tree from making fruit but allows it to really get established. Jul 16, Choose Main Branches and Prune the Others. Select three to five main upward-growing branches along the outside of the tree. Then, remove any competing large branches using a pruner or pruning saw. Pay special attention to removing branches in the center of the tree and those growing downward or horizontal.
