How do I prune my fruit trees?

Pruning Fruit Trees

Fruit trees should be pruned regularly to help maintain their health. To prune fruit trees, you should: 1. Remove any diseased or dead branches. 2. If you are pruning to shape the tree, you should do your pruning while the tree is dormant. This means that new spring growth has not yet appeared. 3. Always remove suckers immediately, since they are usually from the root stock and not the tree that is grafted onto the stock.
