Q.Removing Second Trunk From Leyland Cypress
Hello and thank you for considering my question. We have planted several (what we were told are Leyland Cypress) trees and 2 or 3 have 2 trunks/stems that the planters did not remove. The trees have been in the ground a little over two years. The tree I’m most concerned about is around 8-9 feet tall and has 2 smaller trunks/stems. The tree is beginning to lean to one side. QUESTION: Is it too late to remove one of the trunks? Photos attached. Thank you!
