A great tree, Jose, congratulations. I'm envious of the speed with which you can develop trees in Puerto Rico. I wish it was so fast in Massachusetts!

Jose,

Impressive growth. How's the nebari? Some surface roots would add to the image of the tree. Can you show us a side view? I wonder how flat the trunk is.

Jose, what would you think about removing the first branch on the left side?
