Looking for pointers/advice about what to do with this Chinese elm. I'm currently growing out 3 main branches. I don't like the symmetry on the right-hand side, so I may remove one of those.

How's the chop look? I take it you're leaving leaders on both sides to accelerate wound closing?

Right side looks like a more natural leader eventually - nice outcome from your V-wedge cut.

Lower right branch is as thick as the leader and will be tough to bend from that angle. Assume that's the one you're thinking about cutting?

Really nice material.
