Dwarfing A Fruit Tree

I am told that by pruning the roots of a young tree after the root

system is well started (say three years old) that as a result this will

produce a tree that is semi-dwarfed or practically a dwarfed fruit tree.

Yes; cutting back the roots in the winter and cutting back the new

growth in the summer will have a dwarfing effect. The best way to get a

dwarfed garden tree is to use a dwarfing root. You can get trees on such

roots at the nurseries.
