This is the tree before wiring and styling… am also planing on cutting the top back to the branch leaning to the right for better taper.

Larch 2 Update

So these pictures where taken today of the Larch buds swelling. I like the green buds against the darker bark

Here is the top off cut… I counted 22 rings means the tree is over 22 years old

He is the bud I will hopefully use to develop the second left branch, its the bud in the left crotch of the stump

Here is another bud from the trunk I would like to develop into a branch
