Michelia Alba trimming?

Posted by AngelSmell Fullerton, CA 1 (My Page) on

I have 2 Michelia Alba's I purchased last summer, they are really growing leaps and bounds this summer, are you suppose to leave the branches as is or do you trim the ends of the branches to make it more bushy?
When I purchased both of them at Green Mart in Orange they had very large ones and it didn't look like they had ever been trimmed. Does anyone have any experience on this subject?

I remember seeing Green Mart trimmed their trees. I wanted to reach out and grab the loose cuttings to try and root them, but I knew better.
