Steve added: “Pruning seems very intimidating when you first start, but you shouldn’t be afraid of cutting your tree. 

“Some of the worst cuts you can make are none at all.”

It is important for gardeners to know what they’re doing when hard pruning as this can attract decay, so avoid taking out large branches unless absolutely essential; likewise do not remove tiny shoots. 

Pruning will promote new vigorous growth, so unless you must remove this material, just leave it be. 

Fungal diseases can enter open wounds so consider all cuts made, and consider if you really need to make that cut.
