The picture does not really do it justice (the old problem of displaying a 3 dimensional object in 2 dimensions).
The tree has nice taper, good branch placement (although a few too many at the moment) and a nice gentle movement from the base to the apex. I will most likely have to grow a new set of roots as the flare on these little trees is generally less than ideal. This will be a nice shohin in the future. Cannot wait to start working on it in the spring next year.
