How do I prune apple trees?

Pruning Apple Trees

Apple trees need to be pruned properly to help them continue to produce fruit year after year. To prune apple trees, you should: 1. Do your pruning during early spring, before your apple trees break dormancy. 2. Remove branches that grow towards the tree's center. 3. Remove any branches that are growing out from the trunk at a narrow angle. They will be weak when they mature.
