Awesome tree.  Have you given any thought to how you are going to style it?

Well,  I think about it,  but that's about as far as I've gotten.  All the growth you see now will likely be cut off sometime next year.  It gives a rough idea of a future look,  but I have several looks in mind.  For instance I really don't think the current apex is the right line.  I actually think lower one is.  Either way,  those decisions are still a long way off.  I'm really just watering picking weeds and feeding.  Mostly.

Here's the second one.  Seems to be a bit less vigorous than the other.  Also had a couple of trunks die back, but still growing pretty aggressively.  Haven't pruned anything off of this one.
