Hello Andre,
You will have fun.
I do not know your winter conditions thus
when you go outside, keep your hands in your pocket,
but you do not have to wait that long, larches are one of the earliest to repot
and some branch pruning around that time is possible as well.
In the main time think about a future design, something that will be not that difficult i think with such a nice tree.
Examining of the nerbari will have to tell a bit to.

Killer material. I love Larches, but Larches won't grow here in the deep south, obviously, and I was recently at a David Easterbrook lecture and demo on literati larches in Pennsylvania, where, even there, because of warming trends, they're having some trouble with decline. 30% Shade cloth was recomended. have fun with that one dre, I'm seeing something a little literati in there myself...

Nice material with lots of potential. Hopefully Pavel will chime in as he makes some nice designs with larches.....it looks like you could tilt it to the left to bring out the curvature and make the lower deadwood section a focal point?

to do a literati style with this tree is the easy way out with all the possibilities this tree has to offer it can be so much more than that ill take a picture of the other side as soon as possible

Hello Andre,
Only a quick virtual close to the tree as it is now,
as a first possible step, and to start others of?
Not that easy as the first picture suggested to me, because of the direction of the big yn.

Somebody else in a warm climate wanted a larch. We recommended golden larch, Pseudolarix amabilis, which tolerates down to Zone 9.
