apple tree pruning question

Novato, CA(Zone 9a)

I have an apple tree that has not been taken care of for years and it has branches everywhere. Anyone know how to prune them? It must've been a volunteer as it is between a rose of sharon and a crepe myrtle. They are so crowded that you can't tell from one branch to another. I would try to move the crepe myrtle and ROS if I thought I wouldn't kill them. They are 10 ft tall..The apple is taller. Any suggestions are [email protected]@@@ Shirley

Heres a link to some excellent information on pruning fruit trees.
Also contact your local extension office they have excellent bulletins on the subject.
