Mickey,

nicely done, and waiting to see what comes next for the tree and anything else you care to show.
JBpine is a favourite of mine and I give your two thumbs up.
Later.

Nicely done, clearly many, many years of good care. You brought it back from its period of neglect nicely. Kudos.

Myself, I am not ''taken'' by the design, but the tree is so mature, that a radical design change would take a decade or more to recover from. I like Lukasz's virtual as a possible future. It is the primary branch that throws me, too dominant, it is not unified with the rest of the tree.

One could keep the first branch and reduce branch 2, then keep maybe 3 more smaller branches just above 2, and get rid of everything above. Essentially a low 'flat top'. Or one could eliminate the first branch entirely. I think for balance best option would be Lukasz's virtual, and it is ''do-able''.

Another option would be to develop the apex to bring it back more over the primary branch. Fill in the void between the main first branch and the trunk. The top is not unified with the first two branches. This actually could be done in a relatively short time with use of wire, instead of clip and grow. Dont add height to the apex, bring the apex down to join the rest of the tree. It would make a more unified image. It would allow you to keep the 2 best developed branches of the tree as long as they currently are, and even allow you to continue to extend them.

Of course my sensibilities are just that, and there is merit in exaggerating the first branch, it appeals to many.

Regardless my 'amature' opinion, your horticulture is excellent, well done.
