Text me a photo.
I prune in January, deer eat the buds.
If you want a side job some time i have 2 in yard that could use a real good hack job done on them !
Feel free to text me a photo...if they are too far gone it is better just allow to continue.
Brain, when we take care of my Beaver problem next month we will look at a few of the trees. Good luck fishing this week.
On a call May I also PM you a picture of a 100 year old Apple tree . Which produces lots of apples than drops them when they get golf ball size mid to late July. Tried mulching, tree fertilizer spikes
And watering in late June early July. This old tree uses to produce a great tasting Apple
My house backs up to an apple orchard that is about 400 acres. They are pruning now.
If they can be to far gone i'm sure they are way past that i've lived here for 20yr's and never had them done ! but i'll try to get out when it stops raining and take a picture !
Here is an interesting article on the effects of pruning and cold hardiness. In 2014 the orchard around my house lost a bunch of trees due to pruning before a very cold spell. Only half of the orchard was pruned before the cold set in and it was eye opening seeing the damage. For that reason I prune the few trees we have in late winter now.

I usually prune my apple trees in March but have also done it as late as April with no ill-effects.
I was having habitat withdrawals so I decided to go prune my trees today. Got a few other things done too. Didn’t seem to bother the deer my cell cam shows at least five deer feeding near the trees I cut.
