Dear Mr. Pall,

I have read about spruces that they should only be wired in the winter, otherwise they might shed branches. This wonderful spruce, however, you wired in the end of spring, so is this a myth or did you take some special precautions while designing it?

this is clearly not true. I do all my spruce styling from now until beginning of September. Winter is not so good.
