Care of Peach Trees
I need to know how to prune a peach tree. I think I will have a lot of peaches this year. Last year I had a lot, but they were very small. If you can help me I would appreciate it.

Cut back the tall-growing limbs and 1/3 of all new growth. Cut out all dead, broken, diseased branches. Remove old wood that previously produced fruit (it will not produce again) as well as crossing or rubbing branches. Aim for a funnel-like shape with fruiting branches about 1 foot apart over the top of the tree.
