I've seen a number of old trees in which the top was noticeably larger 
than the rootstock.  I've never seen it harm the scion variety.  The 
overgrowth looks odd, but it doesn't seem to be harmful.

    A few of my plum grafts, that I have performed ten years ago, have
problems.  The diameter of the top is growing faster than the diameter 
of
the rootstock.  It appears as though it will soon choke itself off.  If
these were your trees, what would you do to prolong their life?
