This tree was a birthday present from my lovely wife this last November. She did a great job in picking this stock and the tree surprised us this spring with flowers. As you can see, it has grown well this spring. I gave it a cutback and a couple of wires. It could probably use a few more wires and I will update in the future if I get around to it.
I left a sacrifice branch on the first branch to help it thicken a bit. I think a slight angle change is needed in the future as well as a chop or layer off the top most likely. Time will tell with this one.
