Q.New Crab apple tree

Netty60 added on May 28, 2018 | Answered

My year old 6 foot crab apple tree is bending over as the top 18 inches of the branches are heavy with leaf. The stem of the tree is only about an inch diameter. Can I tie it back on the fence with soft ties. Thank you.

Yes, this will be fine. You can also give half strength potassium silicate to help sturdy it up a bit.
