Keeping all of them helps to heal the big cut you made, but you don't want to keep all of those, because as the thicken up you'll have more cuts to heal.

Yes, you want to pick your new leader. However, at MY level of (in)experience, I'm mot sure when you take all the others off. I doubt that would be a problem in waiting for a year to cut the others back.

The problem I see is that some limbs may get too large and out of portion for the trunk size.  But, you ask questions I would not of thought up.  Is there a need to thin out the branches.  I've read that I should determine which limb will be the continuation of the trunk.  I hope this makes sense and thank you.

I lean more towards mayo. Also, about getting through the hot summers with a shallow pot. You could pile anything insulating on the surface like thick sphagnum or whatever.

Why do you think you might cut them back now? What would you goal be?

Do you mean selectively remove some of them? Or do you mean to shorten them?

In March of this year, I trunk chopped this Lacebark Elm that has a trunk diameter of 1-1/8 inch trunk and  is about 4-1/2 inches tall.  The new growth is getting long and I don't know whether to cut them back now, or wait until the tree goes dormant this winter.  Thank you for any help you may give.
