Multi Stemmed Katsura Trees

Postby treetoronto » Aug 17, 2012 2:01 am

I have 2 multi stemmed Katsura trees. They are fairly young. What should I expect from them? Will they continue to grow in a columnar like form or will they branch out and grow like regular Katsura trees?

Why are multi stemmed a negative? (someone told me that)

I would be worried about the tree in the second pic splitting in during a high wind especially when they get older.....that tree has a weak area a ground level.....you may want to brace that tree or even cut one of the stems off and grow it as a single stem.
