It’s a good idea to start pruning your cherry and apricot trees between the middle of June and the middle of July. Pick 4 branches that stem off the trunk at anywhere between 45 and 60-degree angles—these will be your scaffolding branches. Label these branches so you don’t forget which ones you’ve chosen, and prune all the other branches to 6 inches or so. Then you can prune the central leader a little more than a foot and a half from the upper scaffolding branch, and watch as your trees come to flourish.
