I have an apple tree, a grape vine, atwo avocado trees, black berry vines...

What's the best method to keep trimmed and nice?
Apple tree? When to clean out th extra branches or prune a little to help shape and keep vigor?

Same for grape and berry....it's spring here all the time we barely have but two maybe three frost days ...they have passed for this year I think......but really sun out and it's getting buds on all my stuff so want to make a move soon I think

And avocado? What's best for those...it's out of control...need to clean lowers and direct growth....

Any help or advice ?

I've had grape vines and raspberry bushed and always trimmed and shaped in early spring, before the sap started running and new growth got too vigorous. But I might have been doing it all wrong, I'm not an arbourist, just a gardener.

wall in a book store and get a farmer almanac. We always trimmed the apple and pear tree early in winter but not when temps get below 20.
