    1. We don’t remove the posts, no. The apple trees would support themselves as they mature though, but it is nice to have the option of training new branches to the bamboo in case a branch needs to be removed for some reason. We do remove the clips on the older wood as branches get thicker to make sure that the clips aren’t girdling the branches. Hope this helps!
