Any chance of an update?
Shannon(the assistant curator) and I worked on this tree this year. We attempted to graft on some new tiny grafts but without a lot of success. The tree is much bushier and has more branchlets and is still about 2 years from being ready for display at my guess.

Shannon is going to try some more grafts this year . If that doesn't work we may try some in arch grafts.

These trees don't bud back and there are some long branches that we would like to shorten.
