One year after making the reduction cut on the right hand stem this photo shows that the void is beginning to fill in with new growth. New growth is coming from the left hand stem above the pruning cut and from some growth and sprouts originating on the right side of the tree. With this treatment every 3 to 5 years good, strong structure will develop.
