Because they are very large trees. and must be cut  strictly  only the trunk remain of the tree. I hope  that  new growth came from all the trunk not only from the base.

Also don't hesitate to treat any large section you chop as a cutting... they do root readily from trunk-sized cuttings in my experience.

i have measured the tree and its 30cm height from the base and 80cm the diameter of the nebari so the finished tree its be 80 -90 cm toll. the smallest trunks i left them for some jins. the style that is suited for that tree is informal upright i think. the bad think its that today its snowing from 20c degrees at Sunday. the good think its that i have all the feeder roots intact.
