Nice tree!

I have a few I'm working on. They take hard pruning well and will back bud everywhere. If I prune after mid September, any new growth doesn't make it through the winter.

This one is coming along, picture from last year. It really needs a pruning and some wire:

Only real issues I have are with inch worms and catepillars, and sometimes borers.

Nice!
Thanks soo much for the info. I will plan on a good prune in a month or so. Next year, perhaps a root ball reduction.
