Horizontal branches bear more fruit than lateral. So a lot of people pull their dwarf tree branches down using stakes. I recently saw a picture in Pinterest of someone using water bottles instead of stakes. I got my hands on some bottles and and here is the result. I also pruned my cherry tree slightly. I plan to use Paul Gautschi's pruning technique, but it requires the weight of the fruit to pull the branches down. I can't imagine a cherry crop that heavy. I hope I'm wrong!!
By the way, look how most of the back yard is wood chips now. I have had to take a breather, literally. I'm not sure but I think maybe the wood chip pile steam I've been breathing in may actually be mold spores or something like it, and the cough I can't shake may not be a summer cold. It hasn't stopped me completely, but I really watch the wind direction and am never downwind.
