Message: We moved house and "gained" an apple tree. It is hardly more than a little shrub, very leggy and unruly. It has produced an abundance of apples for the past 5 years, cookers and very tasty. This year the apples are still plentiful but quite a lot smaller. I would like advice please on pruning the tree. Thanking you in anticipation. JW

Message: We moved into a bungalow last november, we have an apple tree in the corner of the garden. It is a cooking apple tree that much I know as I tried cooking one of the apples and they taste very nice when xooked and sugared. There are plenty of apples but not that big in size and the tree is slightly unruly. I think it is a Branley Apple tree as they taste similar. Also some of the branches are hanging over the next doors garden and soon will be falling off. As we are not avid gardeners we have no idea on ow prune this tree and improve its growth and fruit.

Message: I planted an apple tree about six years ago. It's done real well in producing branches, but only one or two apples a year. Would like to have a detailed way to prune and or produce apples.

Message: I have a reasonably productive apple tree of about 1 and a half metres high It has four or five branche growing almost vertically but unfortunately the fruit all grows at the extreme end of the branches. There is litle or no signs of life i.e. leaves or buds on those parts of the brances nearest the trunk. Apart from anything else it looks stupid. Any ideas (I'm completely cleless but keen to learn! Thanks

Message: I would like to take cuttings off a very old apple tree that is in my Dads garden. Sadly he passed away and for this reason I would like to take a graft for my garden before the house gets sold. How do I go about it? Any advice would be so appreciated.

Message: I planted a snowcrisp in may and also a honeygold 5 years ago. With all the rain here in Minnesota I am shocked that both of these trees over the past few weeks have gone brown. Do you think they are dead? I've never seen this with any of our previous applle trees. Worried, Jay

Message: We planted 2 apple trees in early May,w/ all the rain that we have had in June, they both have seem to lost much of their leaves or they have turned brown, the branches still seeem goood � brittle. Should their be any concern? Any pruining in Dec.- Feb. would be best for next years growth? Worried in Wisconsin.
