What to do about secondary apple branches growing straight up?
My 4-year-old GoldRush tree has some secondary branches which are growing straight up and through the center of the tree. What do I do about these? Should I prune them off, should I try to tie them down to make them go more horizontally, or something else?
Thanks for all advice. I am slowly getting a bit of a hang for this whole pruning/training thing and it seems as if there are endless decisions to be made. My tree never looks like the pictures I see, and there's always something about which I have no idea what to do. Quite interesting though!
