The morus is magnificent -- I like the algae on it, also.

Very nice trees. Is it possible that the trunk is a little bit to thin if compare it with the branches?

Oh really!? I think they are perfect. But time will cure that. In twenty years the trunks will be much fatter.
At present the sumo trunks ar mainstream. I think they will be old-fashioned and seen as grotesque in the next decade or so. They were seen as grotesque before. It is only now that we like them. Taste in art changes as it does in fashion. Time will tell.

I love grotesque trees Walter, I admit it.

But these in your fotos do not seem thin in any way -- simply naturally proportioned.
