    car damage

    Lopping cherry tree.

    I think you will find it’s a prunus amanogawa or spire or similar , so it in its genetic material to grown tall and narrow, the only way you will be able make grow out rather than up is maybe to train it on a framework,but even then it will want to go upwards. It’s alway a shame to take tree out...
