Fruit Tree Spacing

Fruit Tree Spacing

Fruit trees are great properties in your garden which can provide great landscaping and delicious fruits in harvesting season. When planting fruit trees in your garden, you need to take the space between trees into consideration because they are very important factors to maintain the health of your fruit trees. Reasonable space between adjacent fruit trees can avoid over-crowded and dense shady conditions.

Generally, the usual space between common fruit trees such as apple or pear trees are about 30 to 40 feet apart. The actual distance should depend on the size and species of the trees. Since most fruit trees will grow up to 30 feet in height with a similar spread, a space of 40 feet should be able to make them grow happily.

For small version of fruit trees, the space can be diminished accordingly especially for small gardens. There are a variety of dwarf fruit trees for small gardens which can produce delicious fruits as well. They are easier to prune and harvest and need smaller space for separation. The normal space between two adjacent trees should be ranging from 10 to 15 feet apart.

You need to choose the correct type of fruit trees for your garden based on weather and soil. Large fruit trees can tolerate unpleasant conditions well which also need large space for further growth. Dwarf fruit trees usually need little space, but they are not able to resist some extreme weathers. So, you should consider all circumstances in your zones beforehand.
