the Austrian black pine that thinks it is a ponderosa - part 4

It was decided that it should be OK to just cut off the strong branches with some green which are going upwards. But if one could severely bend the thickest one, it could well be part of the design. It is not possible to bend a branch of a black pine which is old and has some seadwood and is as thick as 2,4 cm, which is 1". OK, so the deadwood core was removed with a die grinder.
