Summer Pruning Of Apricots

Is it feasible to prune five-year-old apricot trees in August? They seem

in good growth and have been irrigated three times this season, though

they have never been pruned very closely.

Summer pruning would be perfectly proper and advisable. Summer pruning

immediately after the fruit is picked, has become much more general, and

winter pruning has proportionately decreased. Young trees are winter

pruned to promote low branching and short, stout limbs; bearing trees

are summer pruned to promote fruit bearing and check wood growth - the

excess of bearing shoots being removed by thinning during the winter.
