It seems that there is some movement in the "trunk" in the middle, but from this point of view it is looking rather straight.
I am not gonna write remove it, and I rather wait for how you will include it in the composition so it doesn´t stick out :)
And as to style you have chosen - well, why not a cascade? :D

Interesting...
As Mimo said, from this point of view you can see that there is some movement in what from the first pov seemed like a straigt boring branch. Nevertheless, even if i had known that i would never have turned this tree upside down. So, lesson learned, don't think too narrow, straight forward. Thanks for that!

THe middle trunk has indeed little movement on the picture. But I checked the tree and since taking the picture I had added a bit more movement, to better match the main trunk.

Spring has arrived. Took a decent picture of the tree last weekend.

Spend a good 3 hours on this tree today. Complete cleanup, deadwoodwork, wiring etc.

It now looks like this:

Quite beautiful, and the wiring is not bad too.
What I like most in this juniper is the styling, unusual and harmoniously designed. Congrats!!!

Thank you Clicio!

I know. The wiring is a bit sloppy. Had a few issues where I saw no other solution than to take a shortcut.

Guess I could have taken a bit more time. But this already took over 3 hours. At the end, I needed it to be done, as it was time to start prepping dinner!

Funny to see how I left the wire on the second largest trunk on too short. In summer that trunk straightened out again. Guess.. I can rewire the whole tree this winter. Or just sell the tree :)
