Hey everyone!

I have a Bloodgood that's newly planted in my garden, its about 5" tall and I was hoping to learn to prune it to give it the form I desire. This picture is kinda what I'm looking for, do you top these trees do get the lower branches to split/separate out like that?

Any tips?!

Welcome!

They are created as seedlings by cutting the main leader close to the ground and letting it grow multiple trunks.
