Another expert time for me, yay (barely, though).
This was very elegant, and the result looks like a tree (no spoiler), which is extra beautiful.
This variant is really cool imho, I remember solving another one of these a couple months ago (https://www.gmpuzzles.com/blog/?s=Pentominonogram).
Highly recommended!
