<< 2000 Fall: This started as a
seedling in 1999.
<<2002 fall: One year later this is what
I have done with this tree. I selected
the branches that I was going to use
and kept them pruned. I let the bottom
branches grow wild to thicken the
trunk.They will be removed later.
<< 2003 fall: Well it has grown very
fast in the last couple years. I removed
a sacrifice branch on the left side but
should I have waited another year??
Time will tell.
<< 2004 fall Its getting there, I think
in a couple more years it will be
ready for the gallery?
