ye question was awhile ago..... you can prune off the rotted branches, with not removing majority of branch's.... also while your pruning ye can prune any area's that have over grown.*while its winter* shouldn't prune in spring or summer.... also would suggest putting a layer of fresh compost around the bottom of the tree and some blood and fishbone fertilizer in spring. Is worth feeding fruit tree's with tomato feed also when they have fruit on them gives the fruit better taste! hope this helps!
