    Some of the twiggy ones like Tam, may best be sheared rather than thinned.

    Phitzer can be sheared, hand clipped, or cleaned from within to expose a branch pattern, or the latter with sheared forms on the end of the limbs.

    Moonglow, or Wichita can grow up as tall columns, or be sheared tight into a narrow column - like one on my pruning page at www.mdvaden.com

    Personally, I think Hollywood Juniper belongs as a small tree, thinned moderately and trained to have a branch structure.
