Fleshy Red Apple pruning
The Red Apple tree can be pruned from November to March (not when it’s freezing). If the top of the tree is still growing and you want a smaller fruit tree, then it is advisable to trim the top. Most apple varieties are spurring types. A ‘spur’ or ‘short shoot’ is where the tree flowers and forms fruits. By pruning it encourages more of these spurs. These are short, highly branched lateral branches. Their growth can be stimulated. Cut out the old growth on the main branches back to 30% to just above a bud. Then cut back all side branches up to 3-6 buds.
