October Glory Growth
I planted an October Glory i bought from the Arbor Day Foundation in November of 2011. I have never planted a tree before, and I am not familiar with all the terminology. But I was wondering if the tree is growing ideally, and if I need to prune it to get it to grow properly with a single, long, straight trunk?
It has one branch that it twice as long and thick as the others. It is about 4 feet in height. In my picture I labeled in 2. The trunk is 1, and the smaller branches I labeled 3s. I was just wondering if I needed to do anything to shape it now. I don't want to hurt the tree.
Thank you for any advice.
