Thanks, I didn't really know what causes it. When I first bought it was already weak. I thought it will recover in spring which it did. Here comes hot dry summer, it turned brown and some died. I thought oh well, i'll wait autumn. It grown well but still it was leggy and weak. 2 years been like that.

Finally I decided to remove it and slowly bend a back branch to become a new apex. That finally solved my issue.

They're infuriating at times, aren't they? Thanks for your reply, I hope that you've fixed the problem!

I really like being able to see the structure of the branching and not just the trunk. Tree looks great!
