    Thank you! A bunch of good information here. I wish I would have known all of this before planting.

    Yes it’s one of those plastic mulch retainers. I plan on extending the mulch next Spring when I mulch around the rest of the house. This isn’t our forever home. Hopefully by the time it gets that big we’ll be moved to the country! :)

    Thanks for the advice. I went ahead and removed them as there’s about 8 other shorter branches sprouting in that general area. Based on what I’ve been reading on various sites, it’s a good idea to remove any branches that are half the thickness of the trunk as they will compete for nutrients, etc the first few years. As for the straps, I’ll loosen them. What you said makes sense! We had some big storms (tornadoes) coming through the area and I was worried about it getting knocked over so I made them tight.

    Iím new here and spent a good amount of time researching prior to asking so I apologize if this has already been asked... I purchased an Autumn Blaze Red Maple last month and planted it in the front yard. Itís the first tree Iíve ever planted. Iíve noticed there are two branches at the bottom that are VERY long compared to the rest of the tree. Going up the trunk, there are a few shorter branches in the middle followed by a bunch of short branches at the top (see picture). Should I trim the two long branches at the bottom so that it grows equally? If so, do I just trim them or cut them completely off? Iím worried the next storm will cause them to break off. Any advice? <a href="https://ibb.co/yqhCnbX"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/ZxHr6kV/91042-C46-310-A-4-DCE-AAAA-BA3-C4-F2-AEA88.jpg" alt="91042-C46-310-A-4-DCE-AAAA-BA3-C4-F2-AEA88" border="0"></a>
