9 out of 10 homes we visit have had their fruit trees pruned improperly. All parts of success with a fruit tree have to do with increasing energy flow from the roots to the aptip of the tree. Pruning incorrectly drastically reduces energy flow and causes your trees to get sick, have dieback, and stop producing. Corrective pruning will reset the tree's energy flow and drastic positive changes will be seen almost immediately. Nalani is an expert pruner and can also teach you how to properly prune.
Let's get real. There is absolutely no reason to spray pesticides on your trees. Pesticides are poison and lead to a host of health problems, including cancer. Pesticides destroy everything they come into contact with including all beneficial insects, bees, birds, butterflies, and lizards. Then they slowly make their way to the ocean and do massive damage there as well. Organic spray treatments of Neem oil and the proper pruning of your fruit trees is all you need to deal with your bug problem.
