Any hope here? It got by me so fast. I’m thinking I must keep that low left sacrifice below the inverse taper to hopefully fix the issue. Do you think the sacrifice branch is too high to fix? Lose the right branch too or keep?

They are a dime a dozen but this has some good movement….just a fun little project.

Restrain the top a bit more and allow the low sacrifice to run. You have nothing to lose unless of course the nebari is poor to begin with. Then I would consider air layer.

I like the idea. Trim the top way back and let that sucker go. It is a very young tree. No big time invested yet.
Thanks.
