Malinda,

The top can be snipped. Get the tree back outdoors as soon as you can so it can get good light again. Plant it any time you want from now to March, the sooner the better. Plant in an area with good sunlight and good soil drainage. It should not require much trimming, especially if it is to be a landscape tree.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
