larch #1

First image 1990
second image October 2008
Then today I realized that the bark was dead in front and started to peel off. so I helped it and worked with fire afterwards. Now it has a new look. I think it improved again.

what was your reason to remove the old main branch and replace it with the smaller one above ?

Achim,

on a larch I think one should have branches which go down with steep angles. If I had taken the old main branch and pulled it down much more it wauld have become too low. It would look silly to have a rather horizontal lowest branch and then the other branches above with a steep angle.
