olive tree pruning?

ccwoodSeptember 20, 2009

i just bought some olive trees (1 year old), and now they are about 2- 2-1/2 feet tall. they seem to be alittle lanky and i was wondering if i can prune them down some, so they can have a stockier trunk later down the road, and won't break. i've never grown these before and was looking for a little guidance. or should i just let them do there natural thing. any suggestions? thanks ccwood
