Red Maple Sapling



i Recently planted in the ground a red maple sapling, approx 3 feet tall and its trunk is rather small at 3/8”. How do I start to train this tree to achieve thick trunk and maintain the tree small?

In short, you let the tree grow tall and then cut it back. The trick is doing that in a way that doesn’t leave a large scar that would be visible from the front of the tree.
