Thanks for the interest, folks. I have just cleared out a few small unwanted branches, but the tree still looks very scruffy at the moment. I am planning a good late-Summer pruning to tidy up and promote back budding.

Gave the Taxus a pruning yesterday, to refine the structure and start building the foliage pads.

Before...



After...



I realised the apex is looking a bit tall and spindly and maybe too much space between branches. Thinking I need to grow a new leader to replace it - improving apical taper and denser branching? I know it will look very different when filled out, but want to get the structure right now.

Also, realised I haven't shown the back of the tree for a while. The deadwood is quite extensive here now and is beginning to take on an aged patina.
