prunning crabapple

fanyApril 7, 2013

Hi

I have a crabapple at the front of my house that has two big braches near the bottom that are touching each other. You can see in the photo one starts at the base of the trunk and go almost upright and the other is the next branch up that starts at the tunk. Should I cut one out? both ?or don't cut anything at all ?

Thanks

I might cut the smaller trunk off this year, next year cut the lower branch off.
