Q: Apple Tree Care - Pruning and Dormant Sprays
Nov 25, 2009 - Amber
Greetings and Such
We have a very old pie apple tree. It produces very well, but needs some care. Prunning for example; when should I prune and how much should I prune? When the leaves fall off should I spray, if so, what kind of spray do I need? We live in zone 5…. I think, northern Utah.
Hi There Apple Pie Tree Owner
This is a good time to begin your dormant spray regiment, usually three times a season, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine’s Day. Dormant spray help prevent such things as codling moth and other fungal problems. You might want to look at
