Pruning the apple tree

We have nice, old Bramley tree in the garden but several years of neglect mean it has got a bit time to hack some off.

I wanted to balance removing the vertical branches and those crossing without removing so much it triggers a bout of green leafy growth.

In the end I removed all the tall verticals and any branches growing towards the center. This has opened it up nicely and I'll reduce the length of the remaking branches next winter.
