Helps to keep them strong, not overcrowded, less chance of spreading disease, not competing for the same nutrients.

Just like roses then, they won't let any other rose bush grow in the spot that it was in.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

If you do plant another apple tree, you need to plant it in a different spot. Trees will put a substance in the soil which inhibits another tree of the same family from growing, so if you want to plant another in the same spot you'd have to wait several years first.

Hope that you find another one that won't grow so big. I have seen small ones but I can't grow them were I live since they need the cold to grow and produce their fruit.

I'm sad for the wild life, too. Hope they have another good spot to go to.

Even though you will miss many things about your old apple tree, you could plant a new one. There are many varieties in dwarf and semi-dwarf apple trees available. You may be able to find one of the same variety as the old one or try some newer variety. You could also put in two varieties of the much smaller trees without taking up as much of your yard.

I understand. My children gave me an apple tree for Mother's Day many years ago. We planted it in a spot that seemed appropriate for the time and then the children grew up and we built a shed back there. The same thing was happening - it grew nice apples but way too high for us to pick and the bigger the tree got the more in the way it was. Then every fall the squirrels would drop the apples and they would have to be cleaned up before winter. My husband took it down a couple of years ago - it had to happen but I really felt bad!

My beloved apple tree has grown 2 stories high. It is gorgeous and puts off huge apples. The problem is they are too high to pick and are diseased. The tree itself is solid. But it is too big for us to care for it anymore so we are cutting it down...I am heart broken. It is home to much wild life who love to spring too and fro from its branches. It's shade in the summer...too much shade for us to grow a garden in the back yard. I am having a really hard time with this...
