If the olive is not pruned regularly long and thin twigs will grow. You can remove the twigs in the entire year that grow very fast in the vertical direction. If on a twig 4-6 pairs of leaves have grown, you can pinch the buds. Keep an eye on the direction that is indicated by the buds. Cut the twig above a bud that points in the right direction. That way you can determine the direction in which the twig grows. Keep the hart of the crown lightly and remove crossing branches that are very close to each other. Cut the small twigs at the bottom of the tree.
The horizontal branches can be used for the characteristic shape you want. Please note that only the twigs of two years and older are the prime location for the blossom and later the olive. The age of the tree or branch is not a determining factor, only the age of the twigs. Olive trees are very easy to prune. Usually we say; prune away what you do not like but keep the shape you actually want to achieve. The pruning of olive trees is done best after the winter check. When you see dead wood the best thing you can do is to remove it. You can prune the entire season (March until October). When you do it in spring time you will notice that the tree will become fuller.
It is not good if the tree goes into the winter season with wounds. The shape or form is up to you. Please note that you should never prune the tree to the trunk. When damage occurs in the form of pruning the best thing you can do is to place Magnicur from Bayer on the wound this will limit the damage quickly. The other thing you can do is to buy a nutrition package this package will release different nutrients that will help the recovery of the tree. Or you can choose another nutrition package in our nutrition store
