Jul 23, When to Prune Apple Trees. Although apple tree trimming may be accomplished any time of the year, late winter to very early spring is most advisable (March and April), after the worst of the cold snaps to minimize possible injury due to frost. Thinning may seem counterproductive in theory, but it really is a benefit to your apple harvest in the end.
The best time to thin apple trees is within 20 to 40 days of full bloom. Thin so that each remaining apple is spaced 6 to 8 inches apart on the branch.
Jun 06, Pruning is best done in late winter while the tree is dormant, or in the early spring before new growth has begun. If possible, avoid pruning in the summer and fall, as this stimulates new, sensitive growth that may be vulnerable to insect attack and winter bushclear.buzzal Cost: 0 to 75 (if tool purchase required).

Project Location: Harvest, AL Sep 21, Prune apple trees in the fall with pruning shears. Remove any inward-growing branches or limbs that are diseased or damaged by cutting an inch past the crotch of these limbs. Prune in the same manner each spring and fall. Remove unruly growth during the second season and every year thereafter. If they’re ready, they will come loose without damage to the tree.
Harvest season for apple trees in most areas begins as early as July and can be as late as November on average, depending on the variety and location. Here is the annual average yield per apple tree: Dwarf: bushels. Semi-dwarf: bushels. Sep 15, The harvest season for Red Delicious apples is normally late September to early October.
However, the harvest period for apple varieties is strongly influenced by weather conditions during the growing season. (This year most apple varieties are maturing about 10 days earlier than normal because of our early spring.).
One hundred native trees are described in this manual. They include the important commercial tree species of Alabama, plus some flora that are quite limited in their range and use. This list of trees was compiled from the following sources: Monograph 9, Economic Botany of Alabama, Part 2by Roland M. Harper; Forest Trees of Alabama. The Alabama Cooperative Extension System, the primary outreach organization for the land-grant mission of Alabama A&M University and Auburn University, delivers research-based educational programs that enable people to improve their quality of life and economic well-being.
