i was thinking to change something big on this tree

if you take the following image, i was planning to reposition the branch hugging the trunk and on bending the lower left branch up and make it into a small second trunk..


would this look and good?

Starting at the top, I would eliminate the top branch on the right, crossing to the left I would eliminate the second branch from the top, I would straighten the branch you have wired to the trunk. I think the tree would have better balance. Just my thought though.

like this?


problem with this is, the tree will look good from front view, but will lose all balance when looking from other angles aand from above :/

Yes, that's what I meant, alright. Too bad about the balance from other views. Maybe let it grow out? More options later?

i did cut the branch on the top right..

2nd branch on the left is too important in the general view of the tree imo..

the branch hugging the trunk has been moved up a little bit (i cut the bindwire)

the bottom branch on the right/back which is not good visible on these images has been brought to the right and moved way up so it comes underneat the bottom right branch higher up, with 1 sidebranch moving to the back..

i tried to move the bottom left branch like i described before (to make a second small trunk out of it to the left of the main trunk), but i cound't get it to bend in the direction i wanted it to without damaging it, so i put it back in its place..

pictures to follow
