Hi John
The tree looks good. I would remove the thick branches and added substrate at higher nebari. Then let grow. Very Happy

Very nice tree... I agree with Pavel.

While defoliating, did you forget a couple of leaves, or did they grow after defoliating? I don't know the exact implications of leaving a handful of leaves, maybe someone more experienced can explain the technicalities.

Also, if someone can explain why some Japanese masters clip only 'half' the leaf off from Japanese Maples. I do know that they do this to control the energy flow of the tree.

Thanks,

Hi John.

this is a very nice tree! the trunk got a good movement and the nebari is also very good.

regards,
jun



Subarbia,
Leaf trimming will lessen the stress of defoliated trees, specially broad leaf trees. Leaving the petiole and partial of the leaves will help nourish the tree, specially in colder climate, while new buds contained within the leaf axis begins to pops out. when the petiole and smaller leaves (hopefully hehehe) comes out the old petilole will fall.


regards,
jun Smile
