After pruning

This is the tree in the garden I blogged about the other day but now pruned. As I mentioned there are compromises to be made and I have left some growth that is internal of the four trunks as the new external growth is still rather under developed and I need olives at harvest time. Next year I will make the cut.

The other thing is it very difficult to photograph trees to illustrate your point which is why most books on pruning tend to use diagrams. Also in this regard I tend to have patience in seconds rather than the patience of a saint.
