European spruce #6

European spruce, Picea abies, collected in Italy in 1993 - see first two images. Then in 1999. And then in May of this year.

The tree is now quite mature, but the foliage has become too thick. It is time to restyle the tree again. So all the guy wires came off, all unnecessary branchlets had to go, the crown was seriously edited. Then the tree was wired again. Next spring it will be rotated one and a half hours counter clock wise, as in th last image.
