Why should he do it? :huh:

To solve the dilemma between choosing a great trunk and great foliage :)

I have no plans doing this. I have no experience with it and I don't want to ruin this tree.

If the good points stand out more than the defects, the defects wil no longer be inportant.

indeed.. itoigawa has much better foliage.. more compact..

would suit a tree like that much better.. i've seen some virginia junipers, and they almost always ended up with itoigawa foliage since the original virginia foliage is lesser in quality..

curious about the styling of this tree.. good find

It will become more compact in the future. The color will change too, it will be a much brighter green.

If you mean what styling I'm going to choose: I really think that's a no-brainer :)
If you're curious about it's development, you'll have to be very patient.

There really is no need to post the same sentence under every post.

I will post updates when that makes sense. This tree is in a very early stage and needs lots of development.
It may take months, maybe a year, before I will post any new pictures.
