Coffee Pruning At Greenwell Farms - Trees Spring To Life Once Again

Greenwell 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.

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