Help me trim the tree, please
 
I just plant it a week agao. It's a bare-root nectarine. Where should I trim it Or do I have to trim it?
Can I just leave it as is?


Thank You.

If you have it in the ground I wouldn't trim it. I don't see a reason in the pic to do so. If you want a certain shape or height for picking wait til its dormant this fall/winter to trim. Good Luck :^)

This little pamphlet has an excellent section on the training of young trees and the care of numerous mature varieties. You should be able to find it at independent nurseries and online for (US) $7 to $10.
