Thanks Sorce, yes this one is in a greenhouse for the winter. It is a nice little tree, very strong back budding! I am closer to Vermont and New York, hitting the Nationals this year! I can't wait to see all the amazing trees!

Any results from decandeling?
After talking it over, I actually skipped decandling on this guy. I thought since I am still pruning back all branches I will let it grow strong for the season. This tree grows short stiff needles, so I will be curious to see the needle size when I do decandle.

I have a 20cm young seedling kotobuki. I realised the between branches distance is quite far. What should I do to encourage branch growth? Or should I wait until I have my desired height?218AF910-4636-4D6B-A3E6-61D8A7D75EA3.jpeg

Don't worry about long internodes. It is young and will bud back easily when it is time to worry about branching. Right now you are increasing trunk diameter, you need to grow out the trunk to get diameter, and to heal the graft.

As Leo said, let it grow. I have learned that these guys back bud like crazy, so when the time comes, you will be able to manage the branches.

This past weekend I decandled this one for the first time. I am curious to see its response. My other kotobuki that is a slanting/semi cascade didn't get decandled.

Hello, I realised my lower branches has weak buds. What should I do? Remove weak buds?
And also brown leaves at the trunk3BA9301A-4B6B-4E6F-B608-E2E558486B91.jpeg

I would leave it alone for now. Looks like freeze damage. Remove dead needles as you see them, and old needles in fall.
The shoot by the arrow looks bad, either damaged or a pest. Still leave it, but don’t expect it to live. Hopefully you have more trees than this one to keep you busy...
