    My dad and I are deliberating over what kind of tree or trees to get. We're pretty focused on plum and/or apple at this point. A concern of ours is their growing to be 35ft tall and barely being able to harvest anything.

    My dad found dwarf apple trees online that claim to grow a maximum size of 5'-7', is this true? I know sellers will do this with "micro" pigs and they'll just keep growing. SpringHillNursery . c om is selling them and will ship them "bare root", in a dormant state, and 2-5 years from bearing fruit.

    Any direction would be appreciated! We're looking to plant in an area with full sun.

    The height is all in the pruning! You can keep them shorter and bushier this way.
