I have a 3 year old mulberry tree. At the moment, the lower branches are about 3' off the ground. As this tree grows, can I expect the trunk, therefore the lower branches, to grow upwards?
I had a 30 year old mulberry at another house and the branches were high enough to walk under.
I'd like to be able to do that with this tree, but I'm not sure if I should cut off these lower branches as they seem to be a major portion of the tree structure. I don't think I would have much tree left. It has a very nice shape now.
