“I had Winter Cove Farm come and prune some trees that had been planted by my husband’s grandmother, so they held some sentimental value and we were nervous about pruning them. They’d not been pruned in many years, maybe 15 yrs or so, nor did they bear any edible fruit. Brian was wonderful and really put his effort into one tree, as the family had reservations about cutting them back. BUT that one tree produced edible fruit, which it had not been able to do in maybe 13 yrs. Our family celebrated with apple pies, apple sauce, fresh fruit and it was wonderful. My family is so happy, we can’t wait to have Brian work on the other trees so we can enjoy their fruits as well.” Becky McAvoy, Prospect, ME
