Plus, over time, the branches of the lower tier begin to die off in trees, since the plants are poorly ventilated and create shadow for each other. In this case, the crop ripens only on the upper branches, which are difficult for gardeners to reach in order to harvest the fruits. If you initially correctly approach the design of the garden, you will be able to avoid these problems.
In order to provide access to light for the central part of the crown and limit the height of the tree, at the age of 15-25 years it is recommended to transfer the central conductor of the plant to a side branch. However, many people do it wrong. The most common mistake is this: when pruning, inexperienced gardeners leave a large stump (about 5 cm), as a result of which the plant begins to rot.

To prevent this from happening, the plants must be regularly inspected and "strangleholds" must be removed from them in a timely manner. If the shoots still need to be tied to a support, then the tying material is checked and loosened at least twice a year.
