I would have grown, just, one tree by itself in container. This is, purely, ornamental (some places group trees together in container to make it appear more full) and not meant to live for very long.

In order for the trees to perform at their best, they will need to be separated and placed into separate containers until they are ready to be planted in ground.

In can be very difficult to keep such a massive and needy tree in container. I would recommend planting in ground once established.

Here are some articles that will help:
