HELP Prunniung Question
I hope this subject is not a complete "re-do". I tried to search but did not see this exact scenerio...
I purchaced 2 apple tree's this past november and planted them... They are suppose to be a 2-3 years old. I have been reading about prunning and shaping and understand tha main concept of the central leader and coming off of that... The problem is that one of my trees has already been shaped incorrectly (or different) It comes up about 36" and has three main branches that "Y" out from one spot. If you turned it upside down it would look like a tri-pod. each of those branches are anothe three feet long...
My question is can I work with this as it is, or do I need to cut two of the branches out and try to establish a "Central leader??
Sorry for the long post- Thanks for any help!!!
