Eliminating dead or drying branches means that other brances will grow better and fruiting will be more productive. When you have nutrients going to limbs that don’t need them, that just takes it away from live limbs that do need it. If all you have are living fruiting limbs, you can expect them to produce better. Pruning also helps a tree to grow more evenly and not focused on one side. Too many limbs on one side can make your tree develop a lean over time. A significant blunder that many gardeners make can be to wait until their trees start to bear fruit before they think about pruning. You want to have pruning done before this point, so again, they can get the most nutrients possible.
From the minute your trees start to grow, you’ll want to be pruning them. Just because they haven’t started generating fruit, that is absolutely no reason to neglect them. When you keep your trees even and uniform by pruning them, you will notice much greater results as soon as the fruit is produced. You’ll be able to observe that a well pruned tree appears to be a lot better than ones that haven’t. Once you begin pruning, you should focus on the dead and diseased branches. They may be misshaped or discolored, and typically they won’t bear any fruit. Taking out the branches without delay should help improve the health of your tree. If you can’t tell about certain branches, hang on a little while and the ones which aren’t growing anything will be real obvious.
