This ash was dug from my neighbors place last year and planted into a bonsai pot (using the theory of planting recently dug trees into the smallest practical pot) and then put on the bench to recover.
It settled in very well and grew as if nothing had happened.
So this year I decided to cut off nearly all the branches and start the development process from scratch. A little bit of carving to improve the taper and I am hopeful that there will be plenty of buds popping to give me a number of branch selection prospects.
For now its back on the bench and we will see what happens in the next twelve months or so.
