The other #apple #trees all #grownfromseed are putting on #newgrowth Im very proud that so far i have not bought 1 fruit tree but all of them were #grownfromscraps that would normally just be tossed in the trash. #wastenotwantnot I say. Even if ya never get fruit in your life time its #foodforfutureuse none the less. Tho i might have to crack down and save for some i cant seem to grow lmao

Prune it to one main stalk, when it gets to about 4ft, cut it off at the top. This is how they do it in tree farms. It will branch at the cut. (I spent a yr working at one)

Im not growing it like a normal or tree farms do it. My other one is that way well close . But this one Im letting this one be all natural how it would grow wild but will be trimming it up some when it gets older. Its not old enough to trim prune yet. Its the youngest of both my apple trees not even 3 yrs old. @lesliecole49

It does that to me too. The nursery I worked at started all their trees from branch tip cuttings and grafts, not seeds

We topped nothing like what is described. Ours was done to define the trunk and create branching, much like a plant or shrub. The new branches won't come up weak. It may be that that practice is in question, but these were fruit trees for orchard production...
