Hi there! I am a landscaper and I do some minor tree work at some of my client's. There's a client of mine who has an apple tree that's been neglected for too long, and it's full of water sprouts that are a few years old already. I am thinking we should get rid of at least a part of them. What would you say about taking them all off, which would mean pruning almost half of the tree crown? I will come up with pictures. Thanks!
