When you see it like this there's nothing obvious that jumps out as different.  Scroll down

Can't help wondering if it would be a good idea to get the apex over the centre of the base of the trunk?  Here's the original pic from Kohaku:

Does this now look like it is a bit too far over to the left?

BrendanR...did you think abouth something like the right pic (left is original)

I don't think its better.....also the rootsystem doesn't allow to change the angle a lot.

thx

Great to see the progress and fulfilment of your vision. I have a similarly thick trunk lifted and boxed up but have not yet started styling, as it seems to lack vigour. Going to up the feeding regime this year.

A couple of pics just taken before it goes dark. For scale, it's planted in the bottom of a cut off 50 gallon drum. Not the best place to photograph it as it is between a lot of other developing material, but it's too heavy to move!

This is an amazing thread. Thank you for sharing it with us - and an ambitious project that is clearly going very well. Nice and inspiring!

I agree, from that picture the left image is the better one.  

But if I was going to be completely obsessive about it I'd say the point half way between the 2 images is what I'd regard as perfect?  

But that's irrelevant, as this tree is pretty perfect as it is!

When the branches on this have beefed up some more it will present a stunning image!
