    Do I need to stake the trunk of a drarf apple tree grown in a 2 or 3 tier espalier form? Generally dwarf trees require staking because of the heavy crop compared to the relatively small root system but with branches grown along wires in an espalier I could see that perhaps it wouldn't be required. Thank you for your reply.
