Harry Lauder Walking Stick

I planted my Harry Lauder Walking Stick (a.k.a. Harry Potter) last year. He is in a perfect spot out front but I was wondering if it is necessary to cut back suckers? I've seen several that are & several that aren't.

:?

I've always wanted one of those! RE: suckers, if you wish to preserve a certain line/branch/form, then prune away what you don't want. If it is a straight limb then I'd prune that, too.

Ifcernak: repost your question as a new thread, it'll get better attention that way. If possible, include photos of the trunk, especially around the base and up to the first set of branches, that will help with diagnosis. What symptoms did you notice, if any, last year? Is it exposed, or in a sheltered location. Try to include all this information in your new post.
Happy Gardening,
