I will have to agree with the above postings.

First get rid of all the dead/diseased wood.

Second should be thinning. Cut out criss crossing, rubbing, or reaching branches(branches coming from the opposing side) don't forget to follow the 1/3 rule but it only applies to live wood, if its dead it should be considered gone.

He refers to John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed, who spread the apple tree across America as he set up nursery aftery nursery ahead of the population surge moving west. As for being one of his trees-they'd have to be around 200 years old, to be so. They could certainly be descendants, but I don't know if he went into Canada.

That brings up a curious question... were there any apples at all, native to NA?

But, what I actually meant was that it looked like to me - that those tree were purposely placed - as oppsed to haphazard distribution of seed, by natural causes.
