The Q&A Archives: fig tree problem

Question: I have a 2 year old fig tree I'm trying to espalier. I have 2 horizontal branches at the top of the trellis and one on the next tier down. Can't get any more side shoots. If I cut off the tree even with the top of the trellis and remove the 3 horizontal branches this winter, will I ruin my tree or will I get good side shoots next spring so i can espalier?

Thanks for any help.
