The best time would be any time the tree is dormant, that is, the leaves are off. Usually apples are pruned in late February/early March. But it can be done in the fall/early winter as well. Good luck. We also have homeowner spray guides for apples if you're interested. You can call our office and ask for Walt for more information.
