A change of angle?

Post  Ryan on Wed Sep 28, 2011 12:05 am

Hey all,



Just thought I would show this Ficus m. with you all and see what your opinions on it are. It's got a 1.5 inch base and decent taper, up until one point where there is a knob formed. This knob is formed when the main trunk joins a large branch going off to the right. What are your opinions on what I could do? Could I, perhaps, change the angle of the tree and create a new front as well as eliminating the inverse taper? Any comments are appreciated.

Here's the tree:


Nice taper up until the top:


A more drastic approach, chopping the tree and making the branch in yellow the leader (viewed from the side):

The same suggestion I made in the other forum but I think he wants it to be informal upright.

Thank you John! I considered that as Red also said something similar, but I plan on keeping this as an upright. I cleaned up the top a bit and gave it a new leader:
