Training fruit trees to grow as fans is an excellent method of planting a tree where space is limited.  Not only is a fan trained tree of ornamental value, but the fruit also receive more light which helps to develop natural sugars and colour.

The following images are of plum trees, Prunus x domestica "Stanley".

A fan trained tree is a restricted tree form with two lateral angled branches and a series of sublateral branches which forms a framework of evenly spaced "runs".  Fan training is usually performed on stone fruit and where space is limited.  Initial training requires some effort and branches are trimmed to form "arms".  Branches are supported by a system of horizontal wires.

Typical trees appropriate for fan training include:  almonds, apples, cherries, figs, gooseberries, pears, peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums and red currants.

Black Knot (Apiosporina morbosa or Dibotryon morbosum) is a fungus that affects Plum trees (Rosacaea Prunus spp.).  Large black growths on branches indicates an infected tree.  

Once established, the disease becomes more severe each year.  Black knot is a fungus that causes dieback of infected branches.  At maturity, spores are released into the air when it rains.  When the spores settle on new shoots in a wet period, it takes only 6 hours to infect a new branch.  Evidence of infection, however, will not be apparent until next spring.

To stop the spread of the disease, infected twigs should be cut and removed/burned before spring buds break.

The Wonder 
of Trees


 

 

 

"Even if I knew 
that tomorrow 
the world 
would go to pieces, 
I would still plant 
my apple tree."

~ Martin Luther ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I think that I 
shall never see
A poem as lovely
as a tree.

A tree whose hungry 
mouth is pressed,
Against the earth's 
sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks 
at God all day
And lifts her leafy 
arms to pray;

A tree that may 
in Summer wear
A nest of robins
 in her hair;

Upon whose bosom 
snow has lain;
Who intimately 
lives with rain.

Poems are made 
by fools like me,
but only God 
can make a tree."

~ Joyce Kilmer ~
"Trees" 1914

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"The best time
to plant a tree
was 20 years ago.
The next best
time is now."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
