I have 3 older fruit trees I have "inherited" at my fathers home.
They are full of fruit and the limbs are hanging almost to the ground.
Should I prune or cut back the limbs?

Next year, thin the fruit earlier in the year. You can still thin the fruit which is better than pruning the tree. If your limbs are cracked, go ahead & prune. Something I've seen to prop up an overloaded tree is to buy some 1"x2"x8' pieces of wood' cut a V-notch at one end & use it to prop up drooping limb. These props used to be used on clothes lines also.

Thanks for the advice. We used 1 x 6 since we already had and they worked great.
