I recently bought a new plum tree and planted it about a month and a half ago, while there are new leaves on the trunk of the tree no leaves have come out on the branches... do I need to prune the branches for the leaves to grow and if so how much? Also, my 2 yr old Asian pear has leaves on perhaps half of its branches do the bare ones need to be pruned? My Bartlett pear has tons of leaves!! Help!!
