It depends on the instructions you get whether to prune the tree or not after you have received it. Proceed by trimming the broken roots and roots that appear jagged. Healing is easier if this is done. Make the surface of the roots equal by cutting part of the top. A fruit tree with no side branches needs to be cutback by a third of its height. A fruit tree that is six feet long should be cut about two feet, leaving four feet of tree to be transplanted. The cut should be done above the bud, and in a slanted way. Trim all branches that look withered, dead or broken, or too near the ground. As you have done to the top of the tree, cut all branches that remain by a third of its length. Cut the branches outside the bud in order for the new limb to grow and spread outward. There are a few other things you need to do, if you have just gotten your tree. When your fruit tree arrives, don’t forget to soak its bare roots to keep them from drying up. The quality of your soil and the right depth of the ground is also worth taking note of.

Once you learn the art and science behind tree pruning, it will give you not only fruit, but happiness.
