Excellent, leave these all grow, right now they look very tender, brittle, easy to break. Best to leave them all grow, because you will need these leaves to nurture roots when you dig. As mentioned above, dig in your ideal time for transplanting in your area. Coming along nicely. In order to build the root system, I would not do any, or very little styling until at least 12 months after digging it out of the ground. Keep as many as possible of the new branches until the tree is well established, I would delay the first styling until 2016. You will eventually have a very nice tree. Lots of possibilities growing there. Nice

I'm afraid I don't have any pics, it has not grown any more since the last pictures I posted. As a matter of fact, we have had an unusually cold winter with more snow and ice than we normally get. The branching is still there, but the cold has gotten the young leaves. We have had snow and ice for the last 3 out of 4 weeks (which is pretty much unheard of around here). I will post more pics as soon as it shows new growth.
