Hello Neli!
It's one of the tree's own branches which has been thread grafted.
It's kept alive by being fed by the tree itself and when the graft has taken then it is severed

You want to give the new branch as much energy as possible, and the more leaves the better. Once it looks like it has fused, leave it longer! Only separate it when the backside of the graft has withered and there is no more green in that part of the cambium.
