Over the last few years we've been planting sections of our pear trees in closer proximity with one another. This new agri-science technique is called 'high-density' planting. Together, the trees help each other grow; require less pruning; offer ideal access to sunshine for the fruit they produce; enable more efficient use of manpower; and more wonderful fruit can be harvested per footstep by our crew. Instead of nearly a dozen feet apart, trees in these orchard sections are now just mere feet apart.
This Fall, some of the first fruit will be harvested from these special trees. We can't wait to enjoy a bite of these very special 'green technology' pears!
