Orchard trees are not a natural shape. If you've driven through Wenatchee you know how unnatural a tree can be!
Do submit yourself to the knife. Pleasant and comfortable, natural growth . . . that doesn't produce the best fruit. The arborist loves you and wants you to become all that you can become, and that's not wild and unpruned growth.
|John 15:2||He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.|
