Cut Central Leader of Weeping Blue Atlas Cedar

9 years ago

Hi there, I'm new here. Excited to learn and share...

I recently bought a pretty young weeping blue atlas cedar ~8ft. While trying to tie it before planting I broke off the central leader. The amount that snapped off is at least top 40-50% (quite devastated). I've learned I need to be MUCH more careful.

Can anyone advise what the tree will do now?
Will it grow from the bottom out or will it grow up? This will help me know what I should plant with it and if it's salvageable.
Will it survive?
Anything I should train for in terms of creating healthy new growth?
