Apple tree pruning

Pruning apple trees in the winter encourages new growth and increased yield in the coming season. By removing the current seasons growth you also allow light into the canopy and allow air to circulate through the canopy. This process will help to create optimum conditions for a healthy fruiting tree when done on an annual basis. (Summer pruning can be done to open up a crowded canopy if necessary).
