I purchased this tree at a local nursery. I have been looking for a hinoki cypress for a long time and the guy said it was a cryptomera. I think he was wrong. My ope is that it was a Hinoki Cypress. What do you guys think? So far, I have cleaned up quite a bit of dead and a few small branches and potted the tree. Soon I will begin wiring. Should I trim away the low (large) limb. Removing it shows the movement in the low part of the main trunk. Leaving it helps create a tringular shape. Thanks for the responses.
