Yeah, I think I'm leaning the same way, that a little pruning of each will make the healthiest plant and that a smaller surface area will help the plant adjust quicker to its new spot.
It's always hard for me to prune a plant, especially the top part of a fruit tree, but I'm thinking it should end up greatly helping the new plant get the best start.
Great info, thanks again Scott!
