How to do fruit tree pruning?
Can anybody please guide me on how to do pruning in fruit trees/plants?
I have pomegranate tree about 6 months old and a lot of branches are coming from roots, the height is not increasing much but width is increasing as branches are spreading.
I was wondering if I need to do pruning to those new branches, if yes is there any rule to keep some branches and cut only few and after cutting branches do I need to spray something to avoid pests attack or dying the plants?
Looking forward for some help on this.

to get good information on pruning of fruit trees, try videos by 'Dave Wislon Nursery' on youtube. Its very educative.

An interesting question! I'm also interested in fruit tree pruning. There are
more helpful hints
for this: Cut every year. The annual removal of several branches is carried by your tree less painfully than a strong pruning once in 2-3 years. As a rule, you can cut out the number of branches from the crown, approximately equal to last year's growth, (but not more than 1/3 of all branches of the tree), you may consider it necessary to remove new branches, but, first and foremost, try to cut old ones.
