I think you are referring to a "standard" tree, which has one trunk and is kept short in an umbrella style. It should be trimmed lightly but often during the summer to keep the long twining branches in check. Also perform one hard pruning in late summer or early fall, several weeks before your first frost, by cutting the current season?s growth back to just 5 to 6 large buds (leaving stubs about 6 inches long) and remove poorly placed branches entirely. This controls growth and encourages some of the leaf buds to change into flower buds. Good luck!
