I would welcome some advice about pruning my new tree. It is in a planter in a tight space in front of black bamboo. I just planted it 2 weeks ago to make a better screen against my neighbours. I would like it to expand it 4 feet on either side above the bamboo planter and very much want it to be 4 feet higher. I have been reading about how to prune it but I am loathe to get started in case of error. Higher bushiness is what I want. I see that it is just starting to grow some new leaves so I guess unless I am told otherwise I should be pruning it. It hurts to shorten it now but I guess that is what I must do. I would appreciate any advice as to how much to take off and where to increase my confidence to go ahead.
