Ok final work on this for this year then it will rest until spring. I guess I'm really testing the species and how hard you can work them.

I recently placed a guy wire on the left branch to bring it down more horizontal. I made a small notch under the branch at the trunk to facilitate the bend. In late winter I will cut this branch back and hope for buds close to the trunk that I can work with. All I really need is a small stub of this branch and it should be thick enough by the end of this growing season.

I also cleaned up the chop wound to make a more smooth transition.


Why is it I always get ideas when its raining?
