Learn the benefits and methods of summer pruning fruit trees. Summer pruning maintains a tree's shape and size, encourages fruit on lower branches, allows more sunlight and air circulation into a tree to ripen and color up fruit, prevents branches loaded with fruit from snapping, and controls fungal problems in apricot and cherry trees.
