Cotoneaster future?

Post  remist17 on Fri Aug 31, 2012 5:18 pm

Heres a little cotoneaster I picked up. It has one nice trunk about 1/2 to 3/4" and goes up to three large branches. I am not sure about cutting one or two of these. confused I took a quick photos of the tree and will get better ones later.

That huge, taperless branch that goes off to the right has to go. Then, cut away all the superfluous material at the top and take another picture with a plain background, if possible.

first decide the style of tree you like most, and then be realistic if the material can achieve it...

then a few weeks later Very Happy cut off center and right to make an open tree, or keep them all if you are gong to hide them with foliage you need to decide the future for the tree in a way tyou like the most - who cares if you make a mistake, it is the only true way to learn properly
