IMG_0571.JPG Does anyone have any nuggets of knowledge about the extending type tree growth like this Tsuga c.

I hope I didn't screw up by trimming up my future apex this late in the year, but I think it will be fine. If you follow the thicker, bent sacrifice from the right of the photo, towards the center, it leads you to the base of the future apex, which is now looking a little jagged and awkward.
I'm shooting first and asking questions later, but hopefully, at least by late next spring it will be showing lots of buds and ready to have the apex wired. I'd like to have a better plan for next year than just attacking the top. I am more comfortable doing branch selection further down but felt the new top needed some bringing in.

Hemlock or extending growth pruning/trimming advice? Sorry for the terrible night photo in previous post; it looked way better on my phone.
