I planned for today to continue the soft pinching of the maples, but I noticed it was too late so I had to use another technique with scissors and less intensive.
More inside leaves stay on the tree. I have to continue in about 3 weeks.
Another Deshojo where the softwood has matured, so also too late for soft pinching.
Same tree finished and foliage of weaker and stronger branches balanced, that means I leave more foliage on weaker branches and less on the strong branches.
