Pruning an Apple Tree (page 2 of 2)

by National Gardening Association Editors


Use pruners for cutting limbs up to 3/4 inch diameter. Loppers can handle up to 1-1/2 inch cuts. Use a pruning saw to remove larger branches.

When apple trees reach a desirable height, cut the central leader back to the uppermost branch and remove subsequent upward-growing shoots.
