Cool looking dead wood, I think it would look great when finished if you let the tree grow taller allowing the outside facing foliage to grow dense, giving it the appearance of a twin trunk tree that had one of its trunks die back.

Sam, have you used a preservative on the dead wood, or is it a photo thing, it; looks a bit glossy??

hello bill

I'd just re-oiled the trunk before the picture. by now the wood has absorbed the oil and the trunk retains the beautiful color without the shine.

best wishes, sam
