I suppose I can see why the Japanese artists wanted to lower the foliage and shorten the tree. most of the responses are sort of saying "the tree's great. but the foliage gets in the way". I see an amazing trunk with a foliage pad not integrated into it. Grafting the foliage down lower would integrate the trunk and leaves, but would leave the top of the tree too bare...needing shortening.

I like his conceptual drawing and noticed that he bent the upper trunk over to right to integrate it into the lower trunk area. This works well, but I think it does take away the special, "graceful" quality that this tree has in spades.
The solution must lie in the long, lean profile of the tree. the foliage should maybe be cut by half and the planting angle changed. Maybe a low graft and not eliminate the upper pads?
It curtainly is a nice tree.
