Summer prune espalier apple trees

Asked August 1, 2019, 8:22 PM EDT

Do I summer prune an espalier apple tree? If yes, when and how? I do a heavy prune at the end of winter and that seems to go well. But after a few months of growing (july/aug) the shoots are leggy. Your expertise is greatly appreciated! Matt from St Paul
