MODIFIED CENTRAL LEADER

USED ON STANDARD-SIZE TREES

CENTRAL LEADER CUT BACK YEARLY TO KEEP TREE SHORTER

If you have a good scaffolding branch but its angle to the trunk is too narrow, you can train the branch away from the trunk by either using a weight to gently pull it down, or a spreader (available through fruit tree supply stores, or you can make your own) that will increase space between the trunk and branch. Tie string to a rock or a brick on the ground and attach it to a loop of fabric placed over the branch of the tree (string tied directly around the branch can cut into the bark and cause damage) and increase the tension until you achieve the angle you need.
