yes the trunk has thickened considerably !!!

I see that you have removed some of the lower branches...
Is it your goal to continue to make the tree taller and taller ?

I believe the tree would be much more powerful and striking if it were shorter with lower branches...
This can be accomplished by aggressively cutting the top back, which will force it to make lower shoots...

just my thought Wink

Thank you Kevin.
You’re absolutely right.
A lower tree with lower branches was my initial plan
but they hid the trunk considerably.
I have made provisions for some lower branches in the future.
Can you see the 2 lowest branches on the left and right?
