It has been prune and pinched badly. It is so leggy. We can fix that.
San jose juniper Foliage is large and course.  It will not look good on small tree.  We might have to graft shimpaku on this
It has nice curve on the lower trunk.

Yeah that what I thought about the pinching too. It was "one of the John's" that's in the club Loki bought it at the demo with Ryan Neil on Saturday. Can I bring this tree to the work shop in Feb. Boon?
