I have access to several apricot and cherry trees, they are in the ground and trunk size ranges from four to eight inches, They are just getting ready to swell, some just budding out. They have been grown in loose soil so I think getting them out of the ground will not be two hard. I can tree chop some and leave them in the ground a few years, Can I cut them six inches above the ground surface with no bud sites below that point and still be ok?

The apricot may bud well but I have no idea on the cherry.

Farmers around here deadhead apricot trees all the time.
