So I was out pruning fruit trees today, but really not sure I know what I'm doing. I did a bit of pruning on the peach trees, getting rid of some of all the twiggy stuff, opening up the center a bit, cutting back the ends of some of the branches. I'm attaching some pictures. It is two trees, different varieties. They were planted at the same time (early in 2016), but one is more dwarf and considerably smaller. I'd be glad for suggestions of what else should come off. Thanks!!
First two pictures are the smaller tree, from a couple different angles. Last three pictures are the larger tree. Incidentally, some of the branches on the larger one are like 12 feet tall. How much can I cut them back?
I also have two apple trees. One question about the apple tree. One of them has leaves opened up on the tips of the branches. (Tree only lost its leaves in Nov; who knew it would be leafing out again early in Jan?) But the branches are very tall/ long. Is it OK to cut them back, even though that would be cutting the new leaves off? There are lots of other leaf buds.
