time for pruning?
Please let me know if I should post this to a more appropriate forum... but was hoping to get the advice from some other New Englanders.
I recently purchased a house in Bolton, MA that came with... surprise, surprise.. some apple trees!
Everything that I have read says that I can prune late winter or early spring... but I was wondering what cues I am looking for... weather patterns etc... that would tell me that I should prune now... or whether it is too late.
The trees are mature and it looks like some have been cared for but an number have been neglected over the years.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
