    Going to buy a Gala and a Golden delicious apple trees. I have a wooded lot. How much clearing do I need to have to plant the apple trees to have enough sun light? The trees around are not large but are not small either. Mostly pine/pin oak/sweet gum/tulip popular. How much clearing do I need to allow around the trees?

    Many factors that we hadn’t thought of, like good airflow. Thank you.
