On young trees (these are third leaf trees) it is sometimes necessary to lighten the load of nuts and growth by cutting back the tips of the limbs. This helps prevent limb breakage.  It also removes limbs that hang so low they would be hit by herbicides when weeds are sprayed.                                              

It hurts to see nuts put on the ground, but the quantity is small. Also, it is important to preserve the long term structure of the tree so big crops can be held in the future.
