I would be more concerned with staking it at this time of year.

Every year I mean to put out codling traps and every year I forget.  Last year I made a lovely batch of plum and caterpillar jam! 
I would say it is a good idea but as Nige2plots says at this time of year I'd be more concerned about making sure the tree is looked after well for the winter with good staking.

Staking for sure!!

I just hope your tree-ties don't go the same way mine did.....   The foxes loved them and chewed through the lot.  >:(

I have to put protection from Bunnies around my way, they chew the botton foot given the chance.

You are welcome to one or two of our foxes!  ;)
