Starting a specific thread to document this tree. I've posted it in other combination posts- please ignore. This tree has survived two years post collection, so I feel comfortable with logging ongoing styling. This thread will serve as an ongoing journal, as well as for input.

This Viburnum has some inverse taper issues around the two large scars on the trunk, and some messed up nebari. I'm trying to decide which front is the front.

With time, and an increase in trunk diameter, the inverse taper will probably disappear. If a branch sprouts below the first healing scar on the trunk, let it run for 2 or 3 years as a sacrifice branch. It will help thicken the lowest part of the trunk.
