    Hi all,

    We have a very old but very healthy PJM rhodie outside our back window. It must be 30 years old at least, and probably 8 feet tall by 6 feet wide. (2.43 meters by 1.8 meters wide). Very dense as well.

    I am trying to decide if I want to thin it out a bit. Maybe thin out the branches at its feet so you can see the limb structure a bit. And also see through it a bit.

    Please let me know what you think. IMG_20180509_055531.jpg IMG_20180509_055521.jpg IMG_20180505_142848.jpg

    Can you see the 2 rocks in the 1st 2 photos? It might be nice to be able to see them better

    Eileen,
    Thank you. That is a great site. Very helpful. I think I can tackle this monster PJM.
