Are you grinding up this years pruning residue?

Yes, while the ground is frozen. That is one block, still many more trees to prune.

Jesse, if you had a wide York rake, you could easily drag the remnants out of the rows. Or do they amount to anything by spring?

It seems it would be much easier and less work/fuel just to grind it all up were it lays, mulch for the earth in the spring. Many of the orchards in New England do that, think of this as a pull behind hammer mill.
Other orchards pull out all the cuttings and burn it as MH81 said or chip it up in a stationary chipper/shredder.
Not much value in the clipping.
