Should the crown of a columnar apple tree be trimmed


Hello! Tell me, please, should the growth at the crown of a columnar apple tree be cut off? Several branches grow vertically.

Answers:

Not. In colonized apple trees, fruits are formed only on the central stem. Unless, of course, you want her to not grow anymore. I have two sprouts on one colony-shaped this year from the apical kidney. I nipped one that was thinner for the sake of experiment. Next year I will find out the consequences.)
