Wisteria tree training

I planted this wisteria from seeds last spring. Am trying to train it to grow into a tree. Should I be pruning the leaves on the bottom? The wooden trunk portion is only about a foot tall from the soil. The 5' above the wooden trunk is the green vine portion. I think I've heard planting from seeds can take 1-2 decades to mature and flower, which is too bad.

Also, I found recently that it's actually 2 small trees growing next to each other. Will I need to separate them? I don't mind if they grow together, I just don't want to damage them or prevent each other from growing properly.
