Was at a local nursery yesterday, poking through last years stuff and saw a couple of balled Scots Pines. They were about 7 ft, 4-5" or so at the base. Although a growth of them was a little thin, one had very good buds and small branches on the lower trunk. Marked down to $50 a piece. If I took them home and put them in a grow box could I do an initial trunk chop, say down to half size right now? Not a final chop down to a new leader. I'd just want to bring the down to a more manageable size. Thanks!
