We have a large Apple tree which has been a healthy, good producer. I prune it every year or two. Last year 3 or four medium branches died back near the trunk. This year many more and larger branches are dying near the ends and we had very few apples (less than 1% of normal). There are a lot of new branches near the core of the tree with more leaves than normal. Should I prune the dead wood back toward the core of the tree? If so, should I wait for winter or proceed now?
