Richard Hentschel host of Green Side Up continues his 5 part series on dwarf fruit trees and discusses the merits of starting to train your fruit trees the year they are planted. Early bearing is one of the advantages of early training. Proper training for structure when the tree is young follows through the entire life of the tree. Training those first scaffold branches starting 20-24 inches from the soil will allow the tree to remain small
