None of the branches are actually dead (well, one or two very thin ones, 
I guess), because they are growing from the ends. It's just that there's 
a long bare space before then. And along the bigger branches, there are 
all these bare spurs.

I was just wondering if these bare areas would ever produce leaves 
and/or fruit again. It's been a very nice little tree, but it's about as 
big as I want it to get, so I'll be summer pruning the growing tips. But 
if these spurs and bare areas are gone for good, I'm not sure what can do.
