[nafex] Pruning & Fireblight

Greetings all.  Great day here for pruning +15 C (@ 60F for our American
friends), snow finally melting, birds in their glory singing incessently
what a perfect day.  Now, many of our neglected trees required some radical
pruning leaving many entry points and excessive growth potential which would
likely be perfect for blight or other problems.   Although we have never
experienced fireblight problems in the past what is the likelihood of
fireblight in a radically pruned orchard (we're talking 20% to 30% removal
of wood).  Additionally, what is good timing for bordeaux or copper
forumulations for the protection from fireblight and what is a good
application rate?

Best regards,
