With the Train-A-Tree system you will create stronger, healthier, and more balanced trees with less pruning. Train-A-Tree works great on all citrus, avocado, fruit, and non- fruiting trees to keep trees smaller, more manageable and easier to harvest. Train-A-Tree also makes backyard orchard culture easy while producing more fruit that's larger and sweeter. We believe that proper tree training is the most import thing you can do for your trees, after watering of course. Pruning is secondary, important, but secondary to training.
