Apologies for the late reply but I just wanted to say many thanks for the information.  I have now severed the broken branch and supported the remaining one.  I am looking forward to watching it's progress and appreciate your advice on pruning.

Thanks again,

Websken.

Rhus Typhina

Posted: 04/07/2012 at 10:19

About two years ago I planted a Rhus Typhina which has now grown to about 6ft tall.  However, it has two main stems which fork at about 9" from the ground.  One stem is perfectly straight and the other is at a 45 deg angle.  Unfortunately, a couple of days ago, I found the straight stem laying on the ground as it had split from the angled stem for no apparent reason.  It has not sheared off completely so I've strapped it back into position but it's obviously dying.  I've a feeling I'm going to have to take this stem off but can I take cuttings from it and if so how. 

Once I've taken this off, I'm going to be left with a tree which is leaning at a 45 degree angle.  Would it be adviseable to dig it up and put it back in the ground so it will stand straight.

Please can anybody help?

Regards,

Websken
