When is a magnolia tree considered 'mature'? I have one that is now a very large bush about 7ft tall. I would like to shape it into more of a tree by removing lower branches. Is it possible and what is the best time to do this please? Many thanks Yvonne

10 to 15 years would be considered a mature Magnolia.
