I have no idea what direction to go with this guy.
My immediate thought was “to the right” when I saw the first pic. I find that doing an initial cleaning helps to clear things up a bit. That also includes looking for the nebari, but on juniper like that I’ve found that there often isn’t much of a nebari and just end up putting soil back into the pot. Keep that in mind when you look for it on your tree.
Thanks, I was thinking taking that thick trunk to the right as well and air layering some of those smaller branches off. I know I need to clean it up more, I was just not sure what direction to go with this guy. It was field grown for about 8 years and in a pot for 2 and the roots had been reduced twice so its read to go into a smaller pot for training.
