Q.Apple Trees from Seedling

Anonymous added on March 5, 2011 | Answered

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.
