This tree had put on lots of new growth and needed thinning out and wiring of the fine branches. A tedious job and one that I am not very good at but I got on with it. These pics show the result:
There’s a lot of soft growth left that can’t really be wired yet but it’s moving in the right direction.
This is a fun tree for me. I would love to make it more convincing. Perhaps time will do that. Meantime I’ll just continue to enjoy the challenge and not mope too much about the failure.
