New cherry tree needed to be properly trained and these spreaders were easy to use to spread the branches for better production

Quick and easy; time is money so don't have time to make my own. Have a great day. Would be nice to have one designed to slide outward to spread limbs for trees that have been miniaturized; pruned to have 5 limbs coming out and center cut out for prevention of mold.

I bought a Lodi apple tree from you and planted it last year. Would it be good to start using limb spreaders this summer, or should I wait until the tree is larger? The tree is about 6 feet tall (I bought the larger, more mature bare root tree), and 2-3 inches in diameter at the base. Several of the branches are quite vertical. Thanks.
RICHARD P on Jun 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, early to mid season pruning is appropriate to shape the tree to your needs. Think about how you want the tree to look and how you will harvest the apples. If you have children who will be picking apple, prune a little more severely to keep the horizontal growth closer to the ground. Also think about the space your tree is in and how it's height and width impact your other plantings. Remember your most active root zone is at the drip line and that drip line is what you control.

Hard plastic gouges limbs; they can't withstand heavy winds
The main problem with these limb spreaders is the plastic is hard/sharp and cuts into the tree branches -- especially with the pressure between limbs, and when the wind blows. I cut up a bunch of sponges and tried to create cushions between the plastic and the limb, but it made it slip more easily. After the first couple of big windy days last spring, most of them popped off. They'd work better if the ends were a little more cupped and were padded with something.

Limb spreaders
The limb spreaders I purchased have been very handy shaping my young trees in my orchard. They even stand up well in the sunshine.

Invaluable to my home orchard!
These little red limb trainers have helped me get my 70+ fruit trees off to a running start. I love the variety of sizes. The biggest size has trained limbs on my largest peach tree out into a beautiful open vase shape. The small ones are great for small branches and spreading young twin-leader tops in some of my apples. These are versatile, bright red so they are easy to see if they fall out of the tree and the little pointy spikes in the crotch of the trainer really helps stick it into place. My one constructive criticism is that they could have a sharper angle to the ends to possibly stay in place better. They do fall out during high wind and i keep having to buy more (my trees are on top of a giant hill with constant high winds...)

Works good, would be better if they blended in.
These work great. The only problem I have had with them is clients don't appreciate the color. A light brown that blends in would work better for me. But they do do a good job.

Great Collection for Young Orchards
This collection is a great one while your orchard is young. The varying sizes help with the various limbs that are growing. If you have a more mature orchard then you may want to stick with specifically sized packs for your needs.

So much fun, you'll wish you bought more!
I received the limb spreaders and proceeded to create artistic effects on my lemon tree and a smaller crab tree. They looked so good that I used them on little cherry trees and then, I ran out! Always buy more of these than you think you'll need. They're so effective and fun! Your trees will have never looked so good!
They also stay on the trees in 40 miles per hour wind and blizzards. Easy to spot for later removal. I just love these. Wish I had bought sooner!

Worked well and good selection
I have a small residential "orchard" (7 young fruit trees) and this was perfect. I liked the variety of sizes and getting 10 of each of the sizes. They were also easy to use. I've only had them in the trees for about a week. Hopefully they'll hold up well to our weather.

Limb spreaders rule!
Do yourself a favor and buy the assorted package. I have several young fruit trees and most of them were not pruned properly. The limb spreaders will help open the acute angled limbs that are not being removed.

Work Great - Just One Minor Issue
These work great. I've purchased several batches and use them. The only problem I've found so far is one side of the little "Y" on each ends tends to break occasionally and the spreader will fall to ground. It's just happened a few times. If the ends were stronger that would be an improvement.
