I recently dug out this pear tree cut to a stump at the end of July (winter in the southern hemisphere) and it’s recovered with abundant new growth.
I know the general advice is dont touch it for two years but the new growth is very vigorous and the branches appear to all want to be the leader ie all growing straight up. I do need some to form the branching though.
Any tips on the best way to approach this? Should i wait till autumn to wire it? Should i tip prune some of the lower branches? Or should i obey the “dont touch” advice and come back to it much later?
Thanks in advance!
