skeleton = bwskel(imclose(yourimage, strel('diamond', 2)))

Hmm, thank you @Guillaume!
but, this method is not recognized by Matlab. :( "bwskel"
imshow(BW);hold on;figure
skeleton = bwskel(imclose(BW, strel('diamond', 2)))
Guillaume on 10 Feb 2020
You can use
skeleton = bwmorph(imclose(BW, strel('diamond', 2)), 'skel', Inf);
To get similar (but not identical) results to bwskel. bwskel is an improved version and indeed you'll have to upgrade if you want to use it.

binaryImage = imfill(binaryImage, 'holes');
skelImage = bwmorph(binaryImage, 'skel', inf);

Unfortunately MATLAB does not have a "longest spine" function. You can use bwmorph() with the 'spur' option but it won't be exactly what you'd want. Contact the Mathworks and ask them for the longest spine option. I've been asking them for years for it.

Thank you again!
I want to mesure this angles, beween the main spine and Y axe,
and for this I tried to aprox. these spines.
I tried with regionprops -> Orienation too, but I think is not helpful.

Well, you really need to upgrade!
The bwskel I suggested has an optional input, MinBranchLength which would allow you to trim the skeleton to the main trunk. From then on, the 'Orientation' of regionprops would be a lot more accurate. Unfortunately, bwmorph doesn't have the same option.
