Helping apple trees' recovery from heavy deer browse

Thanks so much for the replies. Here are some pics of the trees. Tree 1 had a lot of fruit, so it's helpful to know to take that off.

I've never pruned fruit trees before -- what should I be aiming for, and when should the trees be pruned?

Tree 1:

Helping apple trees' recovery from heavy deer browse

Hi, there,

I'm new to this forum and new to gardening. This year I planted two apple trees, and they were thriving. Then a deer decimated them. eating around 80% of the leaves and all the fruit on one tree, half the fruit on the other tree.

 

The trees are now fenced off. But what will the effect be on them, and how can I help the trees recover? They were doing so beautifully and I hate to think of there being a long-term impact from this early, heavy deer browse.

Thanks very much,

LinLin

How can I help the apple trees now after they have been damaged?
