Hi Mark

I don't know what you are unhappy about.

For me, the root flair shows age and as for where they grow they get battered some times of the year and the top could have been storm or lightning damaged.

Are the other two along the same lines, you could have a three tree forest maybe.

If you are thinking of thinning out the foliage so that you only have it on the branches could you take another shot and load it up.

Hi Mark... firstly I don t know anything about the material/species.....so purely from an observation I noticed the smaller or secondary trunk had lot more branches and a bit more length in them (maybe could resemble more health?), meaning you tipped out the main trunks branches more and had less branches.

So with this in mind....does it in its make up/physiology go to the quickest route for survival, shortest and what it perceives best chance of survival because of its evolution of harsh environments.....sh.t my brain hurts.

So maybe go for single trunk next time and only take little bit off/or tip out at premium growing times (working with longer branches as in more growing points)...don t know...hmm scratching here.

cheers Anthony

Hi Jc, im not happy with it because it's not what I wanted it to look like, but all things happen for some reason so I'll keep it going and see what the future brings.

Thanks Anthony, I'm thinking when I root pruned it heavily to go in a shallow3r pot might have been the problem. This species is supposed to be very forgiving with the foilage and branches but maybe not so much with the roots, I don't know!
