I was going to ask this question on Yellowdog's thread about pruning in winter but didn't want to hijack the thread. Do you guys prune crabapples or pears? I have a fair number of apples that I struggle to keep pruned. Not enough time for all my projects and hobbies. I am planting crabapples, planted some dolgos last year, and thought about some pears. A big reason is not having to prune them. I have pretty much figured it isn't worth it with pears, what about crabapples? Anything to be gained?
