Thanks again Jonas. The lowest branch does look very straight in a photograph, but there is quite a bit of movement. I may significantly carve down the Jin too.
The curving, first right branch (or sub-trunk, as crust called it), is one that was there when collected. It may be hard to see in the pic, but it cuts sharp back to the right at the top. I left it for now to help fill in that side of the tree. I’m also a bit unsure of my feelings about it. - The branch obviously isn’t conventional, but I also feel that it provides some drama to the tree, especially paired with the first branch on the left.
I’m still undecided. I’ll either go with the “drama” theme, or decide it’s just too awkward. Removal is always an option when the foliage fills in.
