    Apple Tree Pruning

    Hey all,

    I was outside pruning the broken branches on the trees from the deer and when I got to my small apple tree area I noticed this:



    Pictured here is the central leader of a yellow delicious apple tree from Arbor Day. It is ... 2 or 3 years in the ground here and I noticed this problem branch but since it is not a small branch I'm not sure how exactly to go about pruning this off. Tips are greatly appreciated for this. To give a reference the problem branch is probably around the diameter of a dime and the central leader is larger than the diameter of a nickel but smaller than the diameter of a quarter.

    I would just take a pruning saw and saw it from the outside in. Go slow so you don't cut into the leader.

    Worked great! A few minor scrapes on the main leader but nothing serious.
