When that nebari matures more, it will be nice. In the last picture, will you remove one of those two parallel roots or do you think they will be ok if you just separate them?

...did this with a Pin Oak years ago and tell you what, trunk went back to fresh seedling green....WTF? Threw plenty of shoots, wire quick because they get woody fast.

….killed it via less than adequate wintering care....HD special, so I didn't get too emotional..... :D :D :D

Roots have a nice start. Good luck!:cool:

just that it was 6' tall and grey before I chopped it. What was left turned to green, not sickly, just a real young looking green. No ill effects, just something I noticed.

I tried two oaks, Pin oak and Willow leafed) this spring that I bought as bare root seedlings off line. They were 4-6' but had big long tap roots that I had to cut off. The bases were about 1". The willow did not make it. The pin has three sprouts coming and going straight up. I am assuming it is ok to let them just grow to develop the trunk and do the branch ramification later in life??

Some could say to pick one as the next trunk section and eliminate the others so the tree doesn't waste energy thickening
unnecessary growth. The other side of it is that more foliage = more energy production = faster recovery/ devopment. I'd lean towards letting them all run wild for awhile. Yes build branches later.

Happy American Independence Day to all the Liberty lovers out there!

Taking off now!
I saw several small yellow caterpillars on the branch tips this morning, as well as a spot what I think was white powdery mildew on one branch.
Neem to the rescue.
