Dolee says prune those apple trees!
They are a favorite spring
blossom of the birds and the bees.
If you give those branches a nice
healthy trim, there’ll be less of a
chance of busting those limbs.
And good air flow rustling those
leaves, will be the key in preventing
fungus and disease.
So open them up and don’t be shy.
Help those lateral branches reach for the sky!
March is the time to get the job done.
Pick a balmy warm day with plenty of sun!!
