Well I just received a two needle pine sapling? It is just less than 11 inch and my question is how to choose the shape of tree do I make it grow how I want? It starts in the center of the pot going straight, then about half way it goes to a north east angle with a single stem. And has seven other branches from tiny, small and mid sized before it takes the angle to the north east, thanks to all for the help. Maybe I can cascade it!
