      Simon Cartwright wanted to see pics from pruning, so here you go.  Here is a 6 year old hazel pre pruning, this year.

      This is a tuber melanosporum orchard, so maximum pruning to get sun to the roots of the tree.  Pruning all little suckers and raking leaves away from base of the tree.  Also pruned up all branches coming off main stems to about 3 feet from the ground, to allow for the dogs to have better access close to the tree later in the year.

      Before and after a 3 year old Q. robur

      Two 3 year old Q. robur pruned to promote central leader (hard to do on columnar individual) and raise the canopy. Trees were not toped.
