Ramification has improved considerably within the last vegetation period. In spring the tree will be partially wired for the first time. Then some of the big stumps need editing with power tools and possibly fire. Possibly by late August to beginning of September of 2015 the tree will go into the final pot, which will be glazed and a bit flatter. In a few years the crown will be larger. By late March a couple thousand tiny white flowers will shine on the tree eventually. I can see that it will be possible to make him flower by mid-February to be shown at Noelanders Trophy in a couple of years. Life is good to me.
