    Just planted today a new paperbark maple 7 ft 3 inches tall. Have one branch that may be a problem but i don't want to cut it off if i don't have to since i like the shape of the tree with that branch included. Do i need to cut off the branch in the picture it is pressed right up against the main tree on a funny angle will this eventually cause a problem like choking the tree or anything else?? photo.JPG

    Do i need to cut the branch off that looks like it may choke the leading stem or do you think it will be ok. IMG_0211.jpg
