How can I get my lilac tree to produce more longer lasting blooms?


This year my lilac tree actually had a few bloosoms on it. But it seemed just as soon as I turned my back they were gone. The tree sits in a partially sunny and shady area and gets well drain off. I prune the blooms as soon as they are spent and then again right before winter sets in. I noticed instead of it having one thick tree trunk it has many smaller stlaks. Are these many littlel suckers stealin all tlhe trees energy to boom or am I missing something in it's care?
