Very nice!
However, I prefer some of your others, more natural-looking, trees. This one lacks taper in the trunk: the base is as thin as the middle of the tree and this makes it look less stable and much younger. Making the base wider might limit the twisting of the trunk, though...
Anyway, nice work!

P.S. have you thought about using different colors of wire to make jin and shari (deadwood)?
