growth at top of caliper

The most aggressive growth is at the top of this young tree. It was grown pot-to-pot for the 18 months following rooting. The short low branches are not vigorous enough to grow well after potting into a larger container, even if spaced apart appropriately. Most new growth will occur at the very top of the canopy.
