$10 nursery stock with first round of butchering.

Regarding image 1.

#1. Should I extend the shari into the top scar? I probably shoulda left that branch for jin, but...too late.

#2. I'm not totally in love with the apex, and I'm thinking I could do with just the bottom two levels of foliage. In fact, I might let it get some more girth and turn it into jin. Whatta ya think?

#3. I'm thinking the whole thing could be tilted too....

#4. What does one do with those blunt ends of jin? Taper them off with a dremel?

#5. Any comments regarding general length of existing jin would be cool too.

#6. The remaining mega branch if just for safety and vigor at the moment. Get rid of it or jin it eventually?




Regarding image #2, any thoughts or suggestions welcome.
