How do you remove soft growth from fruit trees?

Removing soft growth from trees

Fruit trees, such as apples, often get soft growth (water sprouts) on the trunk and limbs. These soft growths should be cut back even with the trunk or limb each winter before they get too big and sap the resources. One or two may be left to grow outward to improve the symmetry of the tree, if this is desired.
