JWP your thoughts on possibilities

Post  Michael Cooper on Fri Feb 03, 2017 4:51 pm

Have had this tree for quite a long time, seriously neglected it for many years whilst running business, family etc but over the last few years getting it together a bit.
However it may be the boredom of winter is getting me down but as I look out of our kitchen window at it I wonder if I should be thinking of more dramatic possibilities
Its recent progress has been

Hi Michael,

I like C the most as well. If it were mine I would also pull the branches down a bit more and keep the rounded top to create a more aged appearance.

Is this better do you think? All this wet weather has given me time to work on my trees on my lap top instead of outside.

I think it's better but I would still lower some of the others as well. But, that is my taste and this is your tree Wink

Looks pretty good to me Michael.

However I did wonder whether it might look better with a little separation between the second left branch and the rest of the crown. Only a very subtle change but in your design the crown is very dominant because it is so broad. To my eye, opening it up a bit lightens the crown and balances the overall foliage mass better.

Although like I say, this only a very subtle change (hope you don't mind me doctoring your image).



Regards

Mind? Not at all Richard always pleased to have, some thoughts. I have had it so many years , most of which time is was severely neglected, that it seems such a huge step to considered such a drastic chop. So thanks for your idea,seems good.
