I am planning next styling of this yamadori either later this year or in the course of next one.  I will be happy for any comments/styling ideas. ( except the one like "send it on  address below ...  Evil or Very Mad ).

Nice tree, I'd prune the length of the branches and develop the secondary growth. Maybe pot on into a bigger container after cutting back the trunk and creating the start of a new tapered apex.

That's definitely an option. Not many branches there though. Need to take a break for a while, I guess.
Thank you for your time, John.

I wouldn't say that, Vadimir.
Anyway, all the existing branches are very well placed, don't you think?
I believe they need to gain some more girth so that they are in better proportion to the trunk.
For this reason and if I was in your shoes, I would select my secondaries (I see there are a lot of them on the main branches) and let the whole thing grow free for this season. Next season select a suitable bud or existing shoot to change the direction of the branch and cut back to it.
I would also work with the new apex.
In my opinion, the base of the tree looks at its best in the first photo.

HI Alexandra,
thank you for your suggestions.   It makes two ( work on existing stucture ) against one ( me - REDO).    Wink

One of the options I have in mind is a slanting tree.  Tree on the first picture, a tilt to the right  30-45°, cut of the first branch from the bottom, reduction of the height - removal of the top section of the tree till the fourth branch.  Styling new apex from the branch No four while the other two branches will help to get  the depth and the volume.

I think that this option will help to gain more visual appeal.  
- removal of the top section that is quite dull...
- removal of the first branch - better visibility of the lower section of the trunk  ( with a possibility to create a jin and/or an uro there )
- better utilisation of existing branches - more compact crown
- new angle
                 a) make more sense of the thick " anchoring"  root on the left ( the right one will be less noticable - burried under the soil at least partially )
                 b) makes the composition more dramatic

Hi Vlad.
That's a fine material.
..
I choose this to be the front.

As for styling
..maybe..
Since the tree has a heavy tilt/movement/ slant to the right, to balance the tree
maybe grow..
More thicker branches/foliage/rammification on left side.
Tilting the pot may be an option too.
good luck.
