Q.Apple tree

Zone 80229 | spike_rocky_rose added on July 17, 2018 | Answered

I have a apple tree and I hate it. All I do is pick up the apples off the ground and throw them in the trash. Is there anything I can do so it doesn’t bear fruit? It is a good shade tree but I do not want the fruit.

There are ways to go about this, but it is not advised, as it requires quite a bit of training to work with the hazardous chemicals properly. Some services will offer sterilization, though.
