Hi John, I would say you've done enough for one season. Allow the tree to recover completely before proceeding with any further training. Boy! Have I learned er, ahem, am learning this lesson the hard way. I'm going to cast a broad net here, knowing there's an exception to every rule, all conifers can withstand one treatment per season and need to be fully recovered before proceeding further. Larch are one of the easier conifers and not nearly as temperamental as some of the pines, but still it's best to proceed slowly and only perform training on healthy, vigorously growing trees. Use this season to get her up and going again and see how it breaks out next spring.
