One codominant stem was stubbed

one stem removed from tree

The stem that appeared to be in the center of the canopy was stubbed using a heading cut. The canopy now appears to be growing off to the right. One of these stems on the right will be pulled to the center using the stub as a splint. Click to the next photo for a close-up.
