Japanese Cedar Summer Work

Before. Summer 2015

Time to thin out excess growth on this cryptomeria japonica that’s in the growing bed.  A lot of growth over the past year and the branches are now starting to lignify.

After thinning.

I reduced the height and reduced branches at the new apex.  Bottom branches were left longer and the lowest untouched as they are sacrifice branches.  I plan to lift this next year and inspect the roots. I also have another one pictured below that I’m not training, just letting it grow unchecked for comparison’s sake.
