Apple Trees Require Patience

We have 11 apple trees in the backyard. They’re semi-dwarf trees, all three years old. This spring, they had a few buds on them, but my husband removed them to make the trees stronger. By removing the buds the trees should put more energy into growing strong trunks, since no energy is going to produce the apples. So, no apples this year, but next year, if all goes well, we’ll have our first apple crop.
