Container Redbud, bent taproot transplanting

2 months ago

I bought a Flamethrower Redbud, tree is in good shape, about 6' tall. As I went to plant it, I found the tap root, but it was curled back on its self, so I pulled it out of the root bound pot and kind of aimed it away from the trunk, however I know it's sort of aiming backwards. Should I snip the tip to keep it going "out" from the trunk, or should I leave it just aiming away as best I can? It's definitely going laterally not vertically down.
