  • A healthy fruit crop from your favorite fruit tree can dramatically increase with some late winter attention.  
    Pruning is key to healthy fruit trees and fruit production. You can prune any time after the threat of harsh winter weather is over until just before the tree is in full bloom.  Prune out any winter damage, branches that grow inward and crowded limbs.
    Prune young trees (under five years old) by removing new or young shoots at their branch origin.
