A new leader was chosen to grow this year which was allowed to grow freely till late summer. I feel that I could improve or establish the trunkline quite well so far and I am focusing on styling the primary branches. Some branches got thick already and I will do some selection next spring when I have to make some decisions about the main branches espacially at the top of the tree. Some of the branches are also not tapered enough for my taste or are too straight which asks for some more bending or cutback. Im pleased with the wound healing that took place so far.
