I have just moved into a property which has 2 apple trees and 1 pear tree. One is a cooking apple tree and the other isn't but as i have not been a gardener and now I am suddenly faced with these wonderful fruit tree's which look like they are dieing. The apples feel hollow and its now august and the pears are small and so are the apples. What shall I do so i can save these trees? Please help me!

Message: I have a dwarf apple tree which was already in the front garden when I moved in, it has flowered and produced small reddish apples more this year than last year and they were not really edible last year.It is in need of quite a bit of attention it's looking rather uncared for, I need advice on how to prune it back as I don't think it's ever been done and as far as I know it's been there for a few years. But I would like to get it back to how it should be. Many Thanks.
