Post by: lehua13 on November 23, 2017, 05:13 PM
Her is what it looks like.  Should I jin one of the cascading branches and slightly trim the top?

Greetings, hard to see with pic...on side and not closeup, ut, I would look at removing the cascade and leaving the remainder as an upright. Looks like it has nice movement.....
my two cents

Jay,
Thanks for the reply.  The pic was okay on my hard drive but rotated 90 degrees when posted.  What did I do wrong?  How do I control how the pic is placed?

The cascade section looks to be much weaker than the upright part.  This is not uncommon for cascade style trees.  The upright part looks vigorous and healthy.  I think you should remove the cascade and make it into a short, stubby jin.

Snip,
Thanks.  It is something I am thinking about.  I am growing in the cascade.  I maybe want to jin one of the cascade branches.  The one I may keep, I think I will shorten when some back growth fills in or gets bigger.  Meanwhile I can shape the top mound.
