Apple Trees from Seedling
I am growing apple trees from seeds. The trees are now 4 feet high with no branches. When will they start to branch, or what do I do to get them to branch?

They should branch on their own here in the next year or so. You can force them to branch now by nipping the top, but I would not recommend that as this will result in a tree that looks more like a shrub than a tree.
