Total beginner to gardening and have never pruned before, but have two apple trees that are seriously overgrown and need lots of attention. Both trees are about 50 years old. The main tree is about 10 ft high and has three varieties on it. The main tree is a red eating apple, no idea what the varieties are, and fruits along long branches at the top. There are two grafts, one small cooking apple, which fruits in clumps on very low branches and the third varitey, another red eating one, along high and low branches. The problem I have is that its a very productive tree, but very out of shape in every direction and very low to the ground, which makes it difficult to mow the lawn. The second tree is a poor looking russet that fruits ok, but is very yellow alot of the time. I'm tempted to cut it all right back to a nice shape , but don't want to damage the tree. Don't mind if its not so productive as have too many apples anyway, but help please!! Many thanks 😊
