Q.Should I Prune Extra Leaders Off a Weeping Alaskan Cedar
I have a Weeping Alaskan Cedar (still in it’s container). The tree seems to have 2 leaders (each about 3’ tall) in addition to the main tree trunk (about 4’ tall). One leader comes right out of the dirt, the other comes off the main tree trunk.
Should I prune these 2 rogues off, or will they eventually spread out to look like branches? The tree is sparse and skimpy so I don’t want to trim off anything I don’t need to.
Thank you very much for any advice!
From what I've read, this tree shows off best as a single trunk. If it were mine, I would take the two rouges out/off. This pruning will probably make your plant look less full, but with time and age, it will fill out and look as it should.
