Update: I spent most of the afternoon working on these guys, here is my favorite one, I think it has the most potential.

I really should have moved the bald cypress off the work table before I took this picture.

Lots of trimming and lots of wire, trying to establish the framework for future growth and cut back to solid branches.

After:

I still haven't decided on a front, what do you guys, and gals, think? I could always put it in a round pot, lol...
Nice job on this! I think you've got the bones of a good tree there.

I wish I could keep these things. I have friends only 45 miles south who have them (but they have a cold greenhouse)..

This is coming along nicely. I agree with Brian in the last picture as the front. It seems to present the best base, and it hides the long straight section of the largest trunk. I would consider removing the straight middle trunk this angle presents.
