Should I prune my pear tree?
Thank you for looking at my pictures. I planted these two pear trees last April. They are over 6 feet tall now. Is it too early to start pruning? Do pear trees need a couple of years of growth before I can take off the smaller limbs to open up the center. I was planning on weighing the branches down this year/placing sticks to separate the branches. Should I only cut little branches that cross another branch? Sorry for so many questions at once. I am not sure what exactly the pear tree is. There were two different names on the walmart tag, Pyrus pyrifolia 'Orient' and Pyrus communis 'Orient'. Thank you for any suggestions. :)
