Q.Weeping Redbud Tree Growing Second Trunk

Zone 30328 | Anonymous added on October 17, 2021 | Answered

Hi I have 2 weeping redbud trees and they are both growing a second trunk that is going straight up. Should I cut the second trunk down at the base or is there a way to shape the branches into a bush shape? As you can see form the pictures the second trunks are already as thick as the main trunks. Thanks in advance for your help!
