Sorry to interject again but with this being a recently observable phenomenon 
has got me thinking about SBD and potential for weakness of lateral branches 
to occir in branches prone to reorientation. Suggesting whether adaptive 
growth and/or reaction wood cause progressive movement; If a branch is 
subjected to a force at its junction with its parent stem containing 
dysfunctional static mass, could this reorientation cause micro fractures of 
less  flexible tissues allowing the outer skin to phototrope. With that in 
mind, its exposure, lateral & weighty branch is tbis now that recipe for 
failure in later years..
