Tree already has a great trunk and branching just looking to continue to improve ramification with smaller needles and short internodes.

I think you may be right Jow, I believe the candles were cut very late.

I will add some pics tonight if I can.

If cut late the tree will set buds with no extension. I would reduce to 1 terminal bud on all shoots then proceed as normal in spring.

I was reading through the thread looking to get an idea of the best time to repot my JBP. I picked it up a few months back and I have a great pot sitting there waiting.

It would also be great to get some advice on how aggressive I can be root pruning. Thanks!

Btw I live in Melbourne.

I suggest a literati, first branch generally around 2/3rds of tree height, chop that first branch off or keep for a while as a sacrifice and use the branches in the upper section.
