apple trees - trained to have a central leader?
i have two apple trees, they are both about two to three yrs old. i have pruned them both yrs but was unaware until recently how to correctly trim/train an apple tree. both trees do not have a central leader, in fact the trunk is approx. 3" in dia and about 30" tall to the trunk and the remaining approx 4' of the trees have four to five large scaffold branches and many one yr old shoots. is it two late to train to a central leader or what is the best course of action. it has not yet begain to bud but will any day now. please help.
