Pruning a Cryptomeria
I pruned this Cryptomeria Jin Dai to look like an old growth conifer. I tried to make it look as tall as possible.
I was a little severe with it, but it will grow out soon enough. I have eight more to do and will group them to look like a grove.
I notice that most conifer growers don't do much in the way of pruning to alter the looks other than maintenance pruning. Should they be enjoyed for what they are, or what you can do to them? Both, I would assume. In this case Jin Dai is a rather unremarkable conifer left unpruned.
