  Subject: [NAFEX] Apple borer

  I was looking into my multi grafted apple tree the other day, and looking at the northern spy branches. One of the branches had no growth on the tip, so as soon as I bent it a little, it broke. The center was hollow. It seemed that it's some type of borer. 
  Should I prune the branche to where the hollow part ends to avoid borers from spreading?
