COMMENTS

As long as there are at least as many surviving even than surviving (but not bifurcating) odd nodes at each generation in the tree of persistently squarefree numbers (see illustration in A293230), this sequence also stays nonnegative, and being also the first differences of A293441 guarantees its monotonicity. If A293441 is monotonic, then A293230 is also, which in turn implies also that A293430 has infinite number of terms and that there will be nonzero terms arbitrary far in A293233.
The surviving children of even vertices are all of the form 4k+1, while the surviving children (those without an odd sibling) of odd vertices are all of the form 4k+2.
