Thinning apples is a lot of work and many people can't bring themselves to do this, but this is why you do it and how. You need to thin your apples to one every three inches. This keeps the fruit from bruising, it gives you a much greater chance to have a nice shinny colorful ap- ple as it increases the sunlight to the apple and it will also increase the size and quality of the apple in many cases. Here is why you do it for the tree. If you don't thin your apples there are many bad things that can happen to the tree. You can rip limbs right offofthe tree. This can se- riously injure or kill the tree. I see people try to prop up limbs with boards and that is like put- ting a bandage on a broken leg. Thin the apples and let the tree right itselfl Never board up a tree. You have no idea how insane that line of think- ing is to someone who knows apples. If you do the thinning you will have a healthier tree, more consistent apple set from year to year and a tree that does not look like you were hanging ma- son blocks from the limbs. If you do this you increase the health and most likely the longevi- ty of the tree. Take the time to thin your apples and remove them from the area around the tree. Your tree and future apple lovers will thank you for it. It is well worth the effort. We need to take care of musk thistle as it will rapidly take over a pasture.
