Those first pics were from a couple of months ago . It's growing well I didn't get branches in all the places I need them but it's doing good. I would appreciate any suggestions on care or design I don't know much about them.

I had to cut quite a bit. Their was a few cuts made by my friend two years ago that are not pretty. He cut the bushes branches  to nubs.

The needles on my Sw wht pine are long also since tree is under development and fed heavily but they can be reduced to @ 1.5 inches.  All you have to do to get backbudding is make a cut.

So far I have let it grow full out with lots of food, water, full sun and prune/thin in late fall/early winter

I like your tree very much.

I received a call this afternoon from someone that was dozing shale dunes in an old quarry. He said there was a tree that I may be interestd in and that I should get there asap or it would be gone. End of June and not prime for collecting. But it was only 79 here today in Northwestern Missouri. Made my way out to the quarry, on my bike, and with only some rusty bipass pruners, rusty saw and some walmart bags. The tree was midway up about 30 feet in this dune. Loose shale. With only one tap root to cut. A fair amount of feeders as well. Anyway. Dug the tree. Hiked 3 miles back to my bike. Put it in my saddle bag and road home. Potted in 100% pumice and under the bench for a few weeks now.

I know. And winter is not that far off. It is pushing new growth right now. Thats a better sign than foliage turning brown. Thanks M. Frary. I would have posted sooner but there is either somtheing wrong with the forums server or my internet.

  Winter will be the real test if it makes it that long. Good luck.
