This demonstration was a tree at a convention a few years ago. My client has been keeping you healthy and has been looming around pretty well, and we decided he was ready for new wiring.

I was surprised how well developed here Ponderosa in the northwest. When I came here in 2006 I assumed that there would be enough sun to really get the sprouting and growing shorter needle in these pines, but after working on a few now in a few years that I have another opinion. This will need only three or so years of growth before it feels settled in this new style.

And after styling. Tree is inclined to the left to avoid vertical / horizontal sections of the trunk, and to create a better drama in the flow right. Apex growth needs several years to fill.
