I finally got one apple tree pruned.

There is one more old apple tree to finish pruning, and then the many new trees I’ve planted the last 5 years that need trimming.

I don’t follow any plan or teaching concerning how or when to prune, but I have read enough books and articles about it to become thoroughly confused. I just cut, snip and clip ‘intuitively’ in order to thin out and open up the tree for light, aeration and ease in picking the fruit.

My style of pruning seems to change each year.
