Pruning New Silver Birch Tree

tracyferguson7 added on July 2, 2016 | Answered

I have just planted 3 silver birch trees, which are about 6 to 8 ft tall. I am wanting to cut off all the bottom branches to make the trunk long and straight so that foliage starts higher up the tree. Can I do this now, or do they need time to establish before I cut branches off? Also, can I cut the branches off right next to the trunk, to almost standardize the tree?
