Pruning of deciduous fruit trees is a very important operation that allows easy access to the tree for harvesting, thinning, fertilization treatments and health. It also improves the interception and light distribution in the tree, directly affecting the formation of structures and flowers, ensuring a consistently high production quality fruit. You need to understand that pruning can integrate different techniques, including removal, shortening of branches and twigs, and manipulation (as folds, bends, slopes and prints). In the life cycle of a plant, stands a pruning (to obtain a correct shape of the tree) and production pruning (to get good amount of fruit of excellent quality). Also can be rejuvenating pruning and pruning of recovery. But to say what is the best form of tree pruning and in the tropical highlands of Colombia, more research is needed. The Research and deciduous fruit production in altitude and the Scientific Research Institute of the Fundación Universitaria Juan de Castellanos is working on these issues .
