Owner's comments

Very weak tree here - slow growing, and lots of winter kill branches (winters here are long, have 3 to 6 feet of snow, and temperatures vary, with average of -8 to -15 degrees C., about 10 to 15 days will see -20 to -25 degrees, and there is usually a damp northwesterly wind off the lakes)
