My son H. and I got the new apple tree in the ground this weekend. This is a multi-year project that will result in a 2-dimensional tree with 6 parallel horizontal arms.
So far I have chosen branches that will become 4 of the 6 arms, and 3 of those were long enough to tie to the guide wires.
I don’t even have the top wire in place, due to a stupid measuring error.
The tree is beginning to leaf out for the year. Wish me luck!
