Just some quick work on a couple of tropicals. They had some dieback this spring due to low temps but have recovered nicely.
This green island was looking great last year but took a couple of steps back this last winter. Just a general cleanup of superfluous buds and dead branches. I did add one wire in the apex.
The next tree was more of the same, a general cleanup and a few wires. I left the sacrifice branch in the apex to try and thicken the apex a bit to help with the flow of the trunk. Hard to tell in this picture but the wiring helped in 3D.
I should have a couple of other posts soon for general cleanup of trees. Stay tuned.
