I resized an oak tree in my new front yard that went from 30' to 12' when the electric company came through... I needed sun for the garden but this one I kept at a smaller sixe and as a result I got to continue pruning every few years to shape it to fit the garden like a glove...

From that experience I learned that lots of sucker growth will continue to grow striaght up and those need to be taken out,,, anually... With lots of water/drainage and good sun it should look better by next Fall as long as you don't waste the tree's energy by allowing that sucker growth... good luck and keep us posted with more pix...

Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
