November 2011. After pruning John attaches the Tree Identity Label to Tracey's tree.

This photo also gives you an idea of scale. The tree is about 2 metres tall at the highest point. We expect it to grow by about 50cm in the next 12 months when we will prune again, aiming to preserve its unique shape.
