    Thank you for your video! I have a question which sort of Apple tee has a sweet apple? I would like to plant an apple tree but I have no idea which sort. I don't like sour apples. We live in Saskatchewan. Thank you!

    We planted twisted Apple tree a couple springs ago and knew nothing on how to care for it. It's seemingly doing fine but it's small so I'm thinking I should remove the small fruit and start pruning. Should we wait until next spring to prune?

    The best advice for watering fruit trees regardless of age, is to water no more frequently than every two weeks as long as the watering completely soaks the root zone. Commercial orchards use that approach in the temperate northwest of the US for all their trees except nectarines, which need even less water.

    I asked a commerical orchardist what they did for their young apple trees and he said first thing we remove all fruit for the first 3 years of the trees growth. I believe a minimun of 2 is okay but it's all about growing structure for the tree in later years for supporting the heavy fruit.

    36 Inch cut is too high . Makes the branches too high for ground picking . My opinion only . Cut at 36 inches perhaps and select branches as laterals at the 10 to 18 inch height as they grow 45ยฐ angle upward

    Well that's one way to look at secret number three . Another way is to allow the fruit to develop to slow the vigor down . Slow the rate of growth of the laterals so that the energy [ carbohydrates ] will be directed in fruit bud or spur development .. I have had problems in the branches growing to much In length with too much blind wood from the base of the lateral to the terminal end . This year I'm going to let the fruit form to encourage more fruit budding rather than trunk and branch height and length

    …NEVER PRUNE WHEN THE TRUNK AND BRANCHES ARE WET…

    Thanks so much for your videos. This is the first one I've watched, but I plan to watch many more. I planted 12 fruit trees over the past five years, and am now realizing I lack the knowledge to keep them healthy. My peach trees lost several large branches, due to the weight of the fruit. I'm hoping to find some information about how to repair damage as well as what to do about half-broken branches.

    Hi ๐Ÿ˜„ do you have a tutorial for pruning apples , persimmons , avocados, cherries , nectarines, peaches , guavas, and or cherimoyas ? I would imagine the pruning approaches are similar .

    For instance , would it be okay to prune back to the 3rd bud for stronger branches ? I also heard that inserting spacers to bend vertical branches to 75-90 degrees is good for making stronger better fruit bearing branches.

    Also , when you say to remove fruits the first two years would it be okay to just remove the flowers before the fruits even appear ?

    Thanks so much for the clarification !

    Thanks for a good video. And thanks for not going on and on about "organic". Even when it's true, it is trendy, faddish talk well before now.

    I think tree pruners have to decide which pruning theory they subscribe to. For my most recent apple tree I let it grow wild for a year first, the idea being, that since food is made in the leaves, it encouraged tree growth and root growth. In the second year I did the more severe pruning for structure.
    Many people have never heard of temporary branches that are left on the tree, but will come off in the future. So you need to have a good idea of the final form of the tree.
    And what about mulch around the tree? Killing the excess of grass cuts back on the tree's efforts to get moisture and nutrients.

    Pick a good sensible pruning program, study it and stick with it.
