I planted a young liquidambar tree (which was basically just a single 2ft branch, plus roots off course) this spring.
For unknown reasons (transplant shock?), the tree soon appeared to be dead. However, three months later, new leaves appeared from the ground. Two more months later, the tree recovered fully its previous height, but this time it has three branches/stems. One of these three appears to be stronger than the other two.
I would like to have a multistem liquidambar. How can I prune this tree to encourage all three stems to grow approximately equally?
