What to do with my red AP ?
Where to cut ?

Comes from a large garden plant, was a few years in a large plastic container, and planted last year in this wooden box to spread the roots.
Now it´s time to decide what to do with the branches...
Cut only the thick ones and keep the V-split or cut even lower and start all over ?

That's a good option 👍

I could try to cut only half through the biggest branches to speed up the healing of the scars... Never tried that before

I would pick the best trunk line and remove the other half of the V. No need to chop below the V IMO.
