1 The first rule of prun­ing is to cut out any branches that are dead, dam­aged or dis­eased, back to healthy wood.

2 Over time trees can be­come crowded with thin, weak growth, so cut out this growth to open up the canopy.

3 Long shoots pro­duced last year, es­pe­cially ver­ti­cal ones, can be short­ened to a sideshoot or fruit­ing buds.

4 If you need more room to mow un­der the tree, cut some lower branches back to the main trunk.
