Japanese yew #2 part 2

Of course, I could not wait and had to start working on the very next day after arrival of the tree. The front branch fell immediately. I wonder why they had left it in Asia. Now the front opened too much though. So branches were pulled to the front from left , right  and from the top. More than 50 %, rather close to 66 % of the foliage was cut off. The crown must be transparent so see the structure and the trunk and mainly also the deadwood. The whole tree will appear much bigger afterwards, which is an optical illusion.
