Title: Shimpaku clump
Post by: Dan James on November 19, 2012, 08:19 AM
Hi everyone,

I've done a lot of work this year. I thought I'd share some of it.

Here's a shimpaku clump that I styled months ago. I'm pretty happy with it, although I think it could use some lower back branches, and the club branch on the right isn't so nice...

I don't know it that's a clump, but maybe a multi trunk tree?  Either way, looks good.  The only thing I can think of right now is to reduce the apical foliage to the same amount as your lower branches to equal out the growth.

 I agree, the apex is too heavy. Unfortunately, I don't have this tree anymore.

Thanks for the feedback!
