I have an older coworker that has large Hayward kiwis that need pruning. He will pay a fair price for a person or business knowledgeable of pruning kiwi. He knows they need to be pruned now but he doesn't know how.
These trees have about a 10 inch thick trunk and are about 7ft tall and over a 35 foot area. There are two females with a male in the center. There is fruiting wood up to 15 feet high.
He lives in Canby. I live too far away to prune it.
If you are wanting to prune these please send me a message and I can get you in touch.

...I envision a jungle I’m no longer near the area.. but can’t think of anyone knowledgeable enough about fuzzy kiwi to take that project on. I’m glad you’re getting on it ‘now,’ they bleed, or pour sap very bad as the season progresses.
I’ve grown them, one fuzzy male and female, and two female hardies.. Actually, you’ve come to one of few places with folks who should be familiar with their habits. But what you describe will take a lot of work and effort! Every year seemed a learning experience for me, and that was around 15 years…
I could give some suggestions.. But wonder how many hundred dollars he’d be willing to spend ‘doing them right,’ as in knowing to leave their fruiting spurs, as well as renewing their fruiting wood while leaving the base structure… And that you can be more aggressive pruning the male, he’s still somewhat ‘wild’ and extremely vigorous, but must be more considerate of the females ..as they’ve been inbred/ weakened for production.
...now if he’s a wealthy eccentric, wants an excellent job ..and is willing to fly me over (and back) from Virginia, let me know Had an older friend who’d put in fuzzies before even we HOS members seemed aware of them, he was sharp, but lost control of them due to their ability to put out ten feet of new growth a year. ...I hope this spurs more suggestions, but will be surprised ~
