In the considerable reading I have done on the subject of fruit tree 
planting, almost every source says to put the graft union no more than 3 to 4 inches 
above the ground. So I figured it was important, although the only reason I can 
recall for this is to prevent too much suckering from the rootstock. None of 
these sources talk about what to do with high graft unions. Hearing your 
perspective makes me relax a bit - thanks!
