This is European Larch , I have choose to style it as formal upright tree. as you can see there is some issue at the top . It need to be fix, and better now then wait to next season.
There are two heavy branches at the top and apex is growing with some angle to the trunk line.
the top part above thick branch has been remove and some notch added .
the top heavy branch has been bent up vertically and secured by wire. Now i have straight trunk line with better branches structure. I will update the process next season .
