Holly trees

Zone 33544 | Anonymous added on May 16, 2019 | Answered

I recently picked up 3 Dahoon Holly seedlings when the bank was giving them away. I have them in pots til they get a little bigger. They are getting quite tall (about 16 in. now). Should I cut off the top so they will branch out or just let them keep growing taller?? Thanks for your help.

    Very little pruning is needed to create a well-structured, strong tree.
    Small diameter branches form main stems in a twisted fashion creating a droopy look to the tree.
