Hello to all. I have this mugo pine i have been messing with since last year, and was told not to do any pruning with until this summer. I know its hard to see, but all of the branches grow laterally and really no apex to speak of, and there are roots coming out of the trunk. Would now be a good time to take off the lateral shoots, and start growing the small branch on top as the new apex, or leave the laterals and grow out the top first? Let me know if you want more pics from different angles. Thanks.
