Pinus Thunbergii “Japanese Black Pine” Fall shoot selection and wiring

This tree was looking a little out of control. Fall shoot selection and resetting of the pads.
It has a couple more seasons before the pads fill out. In the future, there will branch reduction, especially to the lowest branch on the left in the 2nd picture.
Not sure where the previous owners front was, but I have an idea of where I’m going with this tree.
Any comments and critique are more than welcome. :metal:t2::evergreen_tree::grinning:
