Hi,

Nice tree. A little slender with too little taper for me though. I would seriously consider reducing the height and bringing up a side-branch as new leader in order to increase the taper & reduce the height. Furthermore, it seems to be suffering from opposite-branch syndrome: Almost every branch on the trunk has a branch on the exact opposite side too. Ideally you remove of of each pair, where possible.

I would come to something like this as new starting point; It would put you back a year or two in branch development though Sad

Hi Xuan,
I like your tree and pot combination. I think, too, that now is the time to remove the bar branches and select new branches for top/taper. There is also time to wire each trunk for movement. this might be a good tree to take to a workshop with a deciduous "specialist".
