ill upload a picture to show you the tree i collected 4 months ago it has 5 branches at the very top
so the lower brach issue and that wont realy matter as it is about 30 inches tall like you said no taper and these 5 branches have been wired and thats all i need is a thicker trunk and a taper.
in club one man said if i feed it tomato feed then it should thicken the trunk up
thanks again gnome for the helful info
a pic should be uploaded soon
