The new growth was cut back with scissors, the crown edited slightly. Now this tree looks very mature. The wire will go off after four (!) years and then we will see whether the branches behave or not. if not, we will have to wire again. This one should be show-ready soon though.

Again many possible forts. Pick your favorite.
