Chandler Walnut Tree pruning

There are two main techniques for pruning a Chandler walnut tree: modified leader branch system and dormant pruning. The modified leader branch system is the most common technique for young trees and involves cutting the main branch about 60-70 cm from the ground to encourage more fruit buds. Once the tree reaches a height of 10-12 feet, pruning should begin and the first year should involve removing 50 cm branches and any bent or twisted branches as they will not produce fruit. Dormant pruning involves cutting about 1/4 of the tips of branches and removing smaller branches. This should be done in the first spring after planting and can continue in subsequent years if the tree is already producing fruit. Care should be taken to avoid breaking fragile branches and not pruning too close to the top of the tree.

Chandler Walnut Tree Irrigation

Irrigation is usually necessary during the summer months. Trees can usually get enough water from rainfall during the winter months. Therefore, it is recommended to start irrigation from May, as it gets hot during the summer. However, depending on the rainfall situation and the type of plant, the need for irrigation may continue until September. Therefore, it is important to carefully monitor the condition of the plants and provide the necessary amount of water.

Chandler Walnut Tree Yield

Chandler is an American-origin high-yielding walnut tree. Chandler is more resilient than native varieties and is not affected by late frosts and flowers 15 days later. Additionally, its thin shell makes the fruit easy to separate, increasing its value. At the 5th year, 1 tree starts to produce 20 kg of fruit and continues to yield 5-6 kg per year. Therefore, Chandler is ideal for those who want to produce high-yielding walnuts.
