beheading plum to get new low branches
I have some 3 year old plum trees with a 1 - 2 inch calipers which had been uplimbed ( not by me) so that the lowest branch is 5 feet from the ground.
I want to develop it as a fan with the lowest branches starting at 18 - 24 inches from the ground.
I I were to just cut the trunk at that low level, will it develop new branching?????
Any input greatly appreciated
