This tree is making excellent progression since removal of a major right hand branch eighteen months ago. Still not how I want the ‘finished’ tree to be, but getting closer. Back in the WSC pot which all and sundry seem to agree is going to be a hard pot to better.
This year I am making in-roads to reduce foliage size and density. So far so good.
Opened up somewhat to get light levels higher within the tree; this does and has promoted excellent growth from within. Anyway, here is the tree as of May 17th 2012.
