I like the current height much more.  And it looks a lot better with shortened branches.

I agree, I  especially like the new apex.

 Thanks for sharing all your interesting posts and all the nuggets of information.

update it is perfect time to work on it.  it is not pinched like japanese maple..  let it grow and elongate before working.  trim long shoots and remove big leaves

I love the molded roots to this stone. Very well done and progress will only make it better.

The only hangup I have with this tree is the disks of branches going up the tree. I see concentric rings of branches like stacked washers of graduating size on a bolt. Even in leaf I still pick that up. Any plan for a future restructure on the branches or just go with it as is?
