Coffee Pruning at Greenwell Farms – Trees Spring to Life Once Again

stump2Greenwell Farms incorporates modern pruning techniques in its farming practices. Trees are completely stumped after their second year of full production giving them a full year of rest. At any given time, one third of the farm has been stumped.

When this process is completed each February/March, it is a dramatic change in the look of the orchard. The picture on the left was taken in early February, 2014.stump1

These stumps actually have vibrant root systems with a tremendous supply of energy capable of significant vegetative grown in a very short time. The picture on the right is the same Orchard taken in Early June, 2014
