Q.2 Spikes At Top Of Norfolk Island Pine Instead Of 1

Zone 20008 | thomastbishop added on August 8, 2022 | Answered

Both small spikes, one more developed with 3 tiny branches forming, heading slightly left. The other spike is heading slightly right and hasn’t formed any branches yet. is this going to be a problem— top heavy, odd looking, etc. ?

It sounds like it sustained damaged, destroying the leader, at a young age. Any more damage will do more to distort the tree. I'd leave it as it is.
