"Hello people, I would like some suggestions."

"I am beginning to forget my Portuguese. Wouldn't you like to plant your trees in the ground to fatten them up a bit?"

Is that better? Very Happy

Last pic looks good. I will probably remove all or but one of the lowest branch "cluster". It looks like a reverse taper is already starting to form there.

And for your own comfort and ease of wiring snip off the spines!

The trunk of the Brazilian Raintree will naturally 'flatten' out as it gets bigger, such that it may be one inch thick but two inches wide, so traditional taper 'rules' do not apply so readily.
Jim, the thorns impart 'character'! Cool

I have enough character, thanks. <g>

with my trees I leave alot of sacrificial branches these will pull the trunk out and flatten it alot faster I've seen great big ones that had been pruned and staked up to make trees but had very round trunks so I leave them till I get the trunk how I want it. I have 11 month old seedlings with some I keep short and pruned the tips of the branches to get them dense they are allready showing flattened contorted movement . I also have a thorn-less variety that im starting to propagate

I agree with John, why would you want to remove a Thorn trees thorns, Have you ever worked with African Acacia, can you imagine a Flatcrown Acacia in the Pierneef style without Thorns? Pierneef will turn in his grave. Removing thorns (spines) from a thorn tree is like Shocked taking off the cork from a Cork Oak

Have you ever worked with Osage Orange?
