The twisty one pt4

So the mid branch came off,the scar will be carved later.I dont see much point in detail carving a hawthorn,the wood rots too easily where i live due to the amount of rain we get.Far better to put a few woodlice in there pack it with sphagnum moss and let them do their job!

i carved the stump left from the upper trunk,and reduced the height of what remained of the "apex"

This is not a apex at all as the tree will be further reduced in height so the apex can be composed of upward growing branches,nothing is worse than deciduous tree's rushed along with branches manipulated to make it look as though it has a apex,if your going to do some thing do it properly!
