Old Joe Yew Update

Time to rework this Yew called Old Joe after my Uncle. See HERE and HERE for background and older photos.

This is it now. Grown well in the last while. Decisions to be made about the future height of the tree. Initially keep tall for a bit of carving practice on a poor tree. Now as it fills out I might be tempted to create the tree from the bottom few branches. However, tall and straight is part of my memory of my uncle, decisions decisions.

  1. With all respect to your uncle, I would shorten it, so that the shari becomes its primary feature. I would keep the first two sets of branches (as seen in the picture) and jin the apex.

    But it’s your uncle, and your tree. 😉
