Hopefully I didn't do to much to it and hurt any roots or prep it to dry out. Thanks for saying it looks like a decent tree. Ill leave it be now, I took the advice to chop thinking itd be ok. hopefully it will, ill update eventually either way.
A little update- I ended up going with the cut now group. Hopefully I got a good spot, and I stuck the other part in soil just in case by some fluke a 1-2 inch wide “cutting” takes.
Here’s the pics before and after the cut.
Hopefully the little one right at the top grows strong
