Re: pruning question

Donna, this one certinly needs a pruning job.  I would first prune any broken 
branches and secondly I would  clean out the 'rubbers'  or branches that are 
rubbing other branches.  Remove branches that are  growing into the center of 
the tree and poorly spaced branches.    Perhaps you would want to eliminate a 
stem.  ISU stresses not to prune out more than 25% at one time.  Pruning is 
one of my favorite garden chores.
