|You can prune your apple tree now if it has a few branches that are misplaced or growing out of control. If you want to do major pruning, wait until this winter when the tree is dormant and then prune it to shape. You can feed your tree with a 10-10-10 fertilizer broadcast beneath the canopy and raked into the soil. Most apple trees will flower and develop a few fruit at 3 years of age. Hope this answers all your questions.
