fruit tree shaping

Zone white oak, nc 28399 | s022651 added on November 11, 2015 | Answered

I have two dwarf apple trees and 1 semi dwarf pear tree and they are all vase shaped and they did not bear fruit this year. They are all 3-5 years old. I would like to shape them different so they will bear fruit. Where should I start?

I have listed a few links for you with more information.
You mention you only have one Pear Tree, you will need another tree to provide a pollinator.
Also some varieties may not produce fruit until they are 5 to 6 years old.
Dwarf varieties do generally produce fruit sooner.
