If there is an intension to elevate any branches a length of rebar comes in handy. Also some prop wire and boards to keep the tree stable in the container while you work on it.
I like to paint the rebar so it is not so ugly. My favorite colors are green or black.
Beautiful tree! Have fun, learn lots!
Looks like the tree is choosing the style. Who’s leading the chop?
Parallel horizontal trunks… Looks healthy.
Yes, rebar. Cut seal?
I see deadwood…MAYBE a dremel grinder and several bits / or carving tools.
Maybe a fine tooth saw.
Large limb trimmers and scissers of course .
Have beer on ice for after.
Post after photos! Please.
