What would be a good tool and how can I make sure the tree grows straight and has a good trunk? These plants are relatively young. Should I wait or cut low branches (not nessisarily suckers) off? Professional plants look pruned in a way

    It this time: For the plant in the first photo, the grey pot, I would remove the lowest three branches. For the black pot, I would remove the lowest growth that is overtaking the main leader.

    The grey pot has a long root coming out the bottom, indicating that it has been in the same pot for a long time and requires re-potting.
