Selecting 
the proper species and obtaining quality nursery stock is the first step in ensuring your newly planted tree will thrive. Sometimes, however, even the best nursery stock can use some minor corrective pruning at installation. Ideally this type of pruning should be limited to removal of structural defects such as crossing or broken branches, sucker growth from the base of the tree and multiple leaders on single leader tree speciesIf left to grow, these defects will only become more problematic and costly to resolve. Sit is best deal with them early whenever possible. For more information on this topic check out this link from The University of Florida.
