Yesterday I decided to work on the new Figus I bought online. I firstly defoliated the whole tree to better see what I had to work with. It is important ONLY to do this to very healthy trees..as the tree will be weakned... but as the tree was in perfect condition.. I went for it.... Below are some pictures of the tree defoliated.. as you can see there are a lot of branches to work with but most of them was long a leggy.
I think the tree can look amazing when it is done and I was happy to see there are NO big wire marks or ugly scares to deal with.
