This is the continue of one of my firstly collected trees previous progression.
The tree in December 2015
after studding it I found some issues which need to be fix.
1 the yellow circle it is the division place where the second bottom branch coming out from trunk as you can see that branch is thicker then trunk below and the division place give revers taper to the trunk line.
close up view to that branch.
2 red lines show that distance between them is not right judging by the distance between first two bottom branches.
Those two issues were confusing me big time so I decided that only one and the best way to fix it, is chop off everything above the first branch and re-build my tree .
This is how it looks now. I know that I took step back, but sometime we need to do it. Then we can see twice bigger steps forward. The time will show.
