Club member gave this to me. He's moving and needed to thin out his collection. Wanted to know ideas on the front, angle of tree, pot and anything else you would suggest with this tree. Thanks, Mike

How about a literati? Remove one of the top main branches. Lots of wire and a reorientation when planting. Of course you should live with it for a couple of months to let the tree talk to you. Nice tree with possibilities.

Perhaps make it shorter or fatter (airlayer or place in ground).

Literati may be a way to go. Haven't attempted one before and hard to pull off. But I'll see what different options are in there.
Kingsville from what I understand are very slow growers so if i put it in the ground I might as well leave it there :)

There's something I like about it. Have to figure it out I guess.

The wood is extremely brittle. They pretty much won't bend. They grow extremely slowly. Maybe 1/2 inch a year. The trunks really don't "fatten up". Maybe after 20 years of ground growing...
