This is what the midsummer pruning left me with after collection this last winter. I’m really growing to love this tree.
Here is a bit of the fall foliage color after one of our hard freezes that interrupted our wonderful fall.
Fall is the time for vascular growth. This is the swelling of a large summer cut that is starting to callous over and roll over from the outsides. You can also see below that the deep wire scars that were from the spring wire are almost filled out just with one season of vascular growth.
To see the previous scars of the wire look at the progression series of this tree.
