Initial pruning and styling on my new formal upright Hinoki Cypress

I did some initial pruning and styling on a new Hinoki Cypress last weekend. Whiskey bottle on the after photo for size. Here is a before and after.

Haha, I left right after that. Ah, I’ve been there. Some of his prices are sky high though. :frowning: Has he opened back up since moving to Statesville?

Your tree reminds me of my dawn redwood that I chopped this year. It was over 15’ tall. Now it’s this. It dropped all of the old leaves to replace them with much more efficient ones.

He has opened back up in Statesville and the new place is amazing.

Love the Dawn Redwood. How thick is the base?

Looks great! Mind sharing how much that cost you?

Sorry for the delay. Kept forgetting to take a tape measure out there with me. It’s like 3.5" at the base. The base I can see at least. I haven’t done the nebari work yet.
