I'll move this to its proper place, but furst . . . .

This winter, once the tree has lost its leaves, you will need to thin out and wire the branches.  They seem to be growing every which way now and there are many too many of them.  If you need help then, post another picture when the leaves are gone.

Hello Jim,

I agree and thank you for the advice. Thank you!

Nah, he just meant you'd posted it in the wrong section of the forum. Wink

I would feed the tree pretty aggressively for the rest of this growing season, then next year establish what eventual shape you want from it and take it from there. As Jim says, there seems to be a lot going on in there, but your choice of final shape has to be what drives the thinning out process. I am aggressively feeding a couple of trees right now so I have more choice when I do some shaping next year.

An indication of how much bonsai experience you have would help us to advise you as we don't want just to assume you are a beginner,
