Somehow, it seems to be leaning away from us in all three pictures, but I think I like #1 the best.

Which Nice Face?

According to Wikipedia, Streblus asper is a tree known by several common names, including Siamese rough bush, khoi, and toothbrush tree. Apparently it is a popular bonsai subject in the Asian tropics.

Thanks Jim for your comment, by the way, the branch which I put the arrow could be cut off? Or I keep existing on the branch? Or should I lean or do? Please let me get your idea.

There's been something bothering me about the dynamic of this tree and a closer analysis this morning has brought it clearer in my mind.

I hope you don't mind but I've used the poor weather this morning as an excuse to play wth Photoshop and have come up with a (not brilliant) virtual.

My concern was that the apex of the tree (if we take pic 1 as the nicer front) was going to be way too far to the left of the tree. This would have left a huge gap on the right side which would be even more noticeable if you leave the bottom branch at the right hand side.

What I've tried to do is use the nicer front form pic 1 but also use the nicer (and IMHO more balanced) apex from pic 2. The virtual image would obviously require a lot more growth of foliage and possibly even new branches especially at the back. I'd also agree with Jim Lewis that the apex needs to be leaning forward - even more than in my virt.

See what you think but please bear in mind this is only My Humble Opinion and done using imperfect Photoshop skills.

It's maybe too late, but for now, I wouldn't cut anything off. The branches will help add some girth and maturity to the trunk. They can always come off or be shortened later.

Hi Jim,

The buds start to grow now, I keep them more leggy until it more healthly.
