Garden Care: On trees trained as a central-leader standard any competing leaders should be removed as soon as possible in mid- to late-summer. Shelter from strong winds and avoid disturbing the roots, since the tree is prone to suckering. On established trees pruning is best kept to a minimum as large pruning cuts don't heal well. Remove suckers early on.
