Finished today. This pot is 2 inches shallower and is the same size in dimension except height.


Tree is 36 inches tall from top edge of pot.

I liked this one enough to copy the old picture you posted when you posted some time ago, it's coming along well.

What would happen if I took that weak foliage off at the top and brought it down to the better apex?


Bring up each picture then use the previous button below the picture to scroll back and fourth.

It would be MUCH more to my liking. The pointed triangle seems somehow dated to me. With the sharp tip gone it is more of a modern crown.

Massive improvement in the second photo.... you guys have crazy wonderful junipers. I am so grateful that you've taken the time to do this beauty right.

I like the second pic making it a shorter more compact tree and more modern like Walter pointed out. I would probably slant the tree to the left, increasing the taper, larger base, IMo makes the nice movment stand out more.

looks more like a juniper and less like a young pine.... I really like the lower crown..... now... for some gnarly branches :p

I think it looks better with the change, but to the extent that if the apex were a bit fuller and the whole a bit more ramified, I'd like the top back in place a little more.
