Shimpaku Shohin #2 Winter Update

This is a recent winter record picture of the shohin shimpaku juniper that had an extensive shari cut into the trunk earlier this year. The foliage has filled out a little in the intervening period and its looking quite healthy. The plan for next year is to try and make it more compact and to change the planting angle to improve the movement in the lower trunk

For comparison, this is how it looked in the summer, immediately after the work

And this is a reminder of how it looked at the start of this year.
