Pruning Deciduous Fruit Trees Apples (including crabapples), peaches, pears, plums, and cherries should be pruned in midwinter. Although winter pruning removes some of their flower buds, the goal in pruning fruit trees is to open up the tree to allow in more light for a better crop of fruit, rather than to get maximum bloom. (pruning wounds during the growing season may expose the trees to a bacterial disease called fireblight)
