Pruning the Gravileas Trees Again

Pruning the Gravileas Trees Revisited

Exactly two years ago I shared with you the biannual procedure of pruning the gravileas trees to keep a balance between shade and sun for the coffee bushes. This is what I told you then:

There is nothing like rain water to make all the flora grow and in Guatemala we have a very copious rainy season that begins in May and ends in October. During the rainy season all the plants acquire a lush green dress and grow very rapidly. Thus, right before the rainy season begins, many gardens, farms and coffee plantations undergo a pruning process.

In the photo above, you can see the gravileas trees, the shadow trees for the coffee plantations around La Antigua Guatemala, being pruned.
