This Taxus was first styled from a garden plant for over more than 15 years ago.
The tree came in for thinning out the upper part. This doesn't only mean just removing some twigs but also improvement of the tree's form must be achieved.
Taxus baccata takes a few years longer than Taxus cuspidata to obtain fully developed branches all around the trunk. Now there is an equal balance between upper and lower branches.
Detail of the thinned out crown. This tree was presented on a "Two to One" workshop. These kinds of detailed pruning require a minimum of one and a half to two hours intensive work, but the difference before and after shows.
