Recently got 5 gallon Bloodgood for a price that was too cheap to pass up from a big garden center. However -- and this is a more of a personal pet peeve -- they didn't train a main branch, and let it split into two right above the graft. I strongly dislike multi-trunked Bloodgoods, but this was my only option. My questions are: 1) If I cut off the smaller side branch, can the tree survive? It will lose about 40% of its canopy, which I know is quite drastic. 2) I know the advice is usually to wait 2-3 years in the ground before making drastic cuts, but the warranty will have expired by then. My inclination is to cut it now, and if it still looks well 11 months and 29 days from now, I'm probably in good shape. Does that sound right? I feel like this branch may even take over if I allow it go grow freely for a few years first. 3) This may be a stupid question, but I can't prompt the large cut branch to root and grow a separate tree, can I? See the attached photo for reference. I circled in yellow the branch I want to cut off. Thanks for all of your help!
