Andy brought along this nice bit of Hawthorn



There was a lot of discussion of which way Andy should go after John had done some thinning out.








There is a very stright area of the trunk towards the top of the tree, there is a couple of ideas to get around this one is to put a bend into the area
and this would be good but might not address the lack of taper.
The other way might be to shorten the tree forming a new apex from existing branches and twigs.



Lots for Andy to think about
