Trimming Leaves From Tomato Plants

Anonymous added on September 13, 2011 | Answered

I've heard that by trimming the leaves off a tomato plant at a certain time it makes them produce better. I bought 2 tree tomato plants that are growing and have just a few green tomatoes on them. I planted them in May. Should I trim the leaves off or is there anything I can do to make them produce and ripen faster? I'm in Zone 5.
