Hello all,

I just want to share with you the initial styling I've done on a small Cryptomeria Japonica I had bought as nursery stock.

I have pruned branches and wired it - this is just a first step, I'd say nothing more for this year!
What do you think? Do you have any suggestion or specific advice?

Thanks!

I would say it's good for a first draft

I've been told that I've stressed the tree too much by hard-pruning and wiring it at the same time (mid-April).

Actually I've not bent the trunk or any thick branches (there are none...), but just given a direction to young, green, supple branches.

What is your opinion?

Thanks!
