In August last year the tree came home safe and sound, I potted the tree and waited for about 3 month to be sure it survived. Some branches just being cut randomly. After the crown has formed I took off all leaves. the wiring is going to be done in three stages. First I wire the main branches down and use the "terrier" for cutting the notch from branches that have been taking of in beginning of the process. The dead wood should later be exposed. But to gain mor thickness in the branches I don't wire the individual branch.

 :) I used old tire rubber to protect the branches, drilled a lot of holes into the bucked and started to bend them down.
