Hoping to get some help with the structural design of this black pine I got from nursery stock. I am new to black pines but decided to get one since they seem like such a great tree to shape over time. This one seems to have quite a strong apex, that really dominates the rest of the tree. In trying to train this tree as a bonsai, I wonder if it would make sense to remove that section of the tree just above the next top two branches. I’ve been reading a lot about how to shape these trees and it seems like that section might be causing a bit of imbalance. However, I don’t have much actual experience with black pines, so any advice would help.
