Looking after a horse chestnut tree

I have grown a horse chestnut tree/sapling from a conker. It is about 7 foot tall and has a lot of small branches on the ‘trunk’. I guess these should be removed. If so, how and when, and are there precautions I should take?

This article has information about horse chestnut. It advises pruning in late winter. [1]
No special approach to pruning, just cut the little branches off flush with the trunk, using a hand pruner or saw.
