I would like to have a small "cork-screw' willow in my front yard. I don't want it as a bush, but with a strong middle trunk.
It currently is about 1.5 feet tall. It has three fairly equally tall trunks. One is very bent. The other two are fairly straight. They are beginning to grow multiple branches.
When should I trim these? How do I choose which to trim and which not to? How else can I direct its growth?
