Who says you can't teach old dogs new tricks?  Since the 70s, we've been guilty of shaping our trees a little too much on the wide side.  In recent years, some ouf our customers have been asking for more narrow shapes.  So, as farmers in the business of giving customers what they want, we stepped out of our comfort zone and gave it a try.  And, turns out it was kind of fun! 

Having a new pruning technique to try when it's 98 degrees out made things more interesting and helped keep us motivated.  We still have plenty of wider trees, but we now also have a wider array of tapers including a few that are dramatically narrow.  Folks tight on space will be intrigued. 

Please do let us know what you think of our new "Hollow Creek Slims" and if you have any special taper requests.  We will work hard next summer to grant your wish.
