The Q&A Archives: Pruning An Apple Tree

Question: When would be the best time of year to prune a golden
delicious apple tree?

Answer: Apple trees should be pruned in late winter (February in your growing region), before new growth begins. Begin by pruning out any broken, dead or diseased branches and any that are crossing or rubbing. Then prune your tree to shape.
