Owner's comments

Badly neglected old tree with several of the main branches crossing and rubbing, to the point that some have naturally grafted themselves together. Wood is healthy and tree crops well, though quite scab-prone at the moment. I am gradually thinning, and reducing height slightly. A beautiful tree when in in blossom.
