The original pic is very old. This was an arm from the original now 4 years old. She split at the top this growing season and only one side of the split grew. Maybe next season the other side will! ❤️

Yes! I’m 5’6” and leaning against the wall. Everyone wants me to cut it. So far, I refuse! But I may not be able to move her in/out before long…

I say cut it when you need to move it. Until then, let it grow. You can always wrap it with cardboard and newspaper when you do move it in the future.

I lay her into a blanket on her side to move in/out now. It takes 3 people. I’m not gonna cut her until she’s too tall for the ceiling inside ☺️
