Series of photos of progression of ERC thus far.

Acquired summer 2012 from nursery. Neglected stock, acquired for next to nothing. Tree stood about 6' in height.

Rough sketch showing potential plan for tree.

After repot and trim in March. Began chasing it back a bit. Took about 1-2' off top and removed roughly 1/3 of root mass during repot.

Opened it up a lot to promote backbudding. Will give some doses of fertilizer and let him recover and grow the remainder of the season. Hopefully chase it back a bit further and remove another 1/3 of the root mass next spring. Hoping to have something half presentable in 2-3 years.

Thoughts?

That one looks like it's off to a very good start. In the pictures I see it's got almost completely mature foliage? I'll be surprised though, if it keeps that after all the styling work.
Thanks for sharing a nice tree, and please keep posting updates. Smile

Auballagh,

There was very little juvenile foliage when I began working on it. I too would be surprised (pleasantly) if that remained the case. I'll snap a few photos of some of the newer growth appearing in the crotches and along main trunk to share.

Suppose I'll know what I'll be dealing with in the near future.

Responded well to hard pruning.  Getting significant growth at the tips with minor backbudding.  New growth from the two trunks at the location of the proposed apex should give me options to move forward with.
