Hi, I know that we've had numerous posts on this topic in the past, but I can't glean from any of the previous what I'd like to know
This apple tree is about 40 years old. It's about 12-14ft high and is very "busy" at the top. In the spring it wil increase height by 2-3 feet before I do a summer prune to thin out the leafy section. It' really becoming a bit unmanageable now and I'd like to reduce the height. However as most of the greenery is at the very top, will I end up with several "trunks" with no leaf and ultimately a dead tree?
Does anyone have any suggestions please? Many thanks.
