Ginkgo fall pruning

This one is chunky, and I’m keeping it chunky by cutting it back hard every couple years.  I always seal the cuts, and try to cut fat branches shorter, and leave 2 nodes on thin branches.

Round one complete…step back take a look and fix that left side.  I’m ok with one side growing taller, it just needs to be interesting…

There, more interesting…

Seal all the wounds, and let it rest for a few months…

Fall Break

Back in a few weeks with more work:  JBP winter work, thread graft updates, RMJ first styling, and a visit from Bjorn!

Until then, how about some fall color progression shots.
