In a document provided by the city of Montreal for home onwners, it states
"Choose branches that form a wide angle (50° to 100°) to the trunk which encourage them to bear fruit."
In the French version of the same document, it states 50° to 130°.
My understanding is that branches should stoop downward from the trunk:
| <- max 130 degree |\ | \
| | / |/ | <- max 130 degree
or anything in between, including perpendicular:
| |---- |
Is my understanding correct and is this generally what is recommended?
