Shamma Beech Prune

A very quick lop off the top of the main trunk.  I initially did this to promote better taper but  I like the idea of a possible kifu sized twin trunk tree.  It would be unusual as a bonsai style though, with the minor trunk at the back.  It’s been supported by its new roots for a year now and growth was minimal last year.  I plan to feed very heavily this year to beef it up a bit.


This side presents the best width of trunk and nebari



I could reduce it down even further to the first vertical branch on the main trunk. Any opinions?
