    JBP opinions sought

    I plucked enough to show the structure off a little. I went ahead and cut the smaller of the branches I asked for opinions on. It emerged from the large branch anyway, so that was really not even a question. The second branch is too ramified in comparison to the first branch so it will be...

    JBP opinions sought

    Here are a few pictures of a tree I have been working for a while. I have a few choices for the first branch, the larger stub with a nice secondary branch already in place or the smaller branch originating from right above the original branch. I am tempted to cut the small branch off and give...

    Keep it or Cut it?

    I agree with rockm about the left leader. I think the lower branch you question looks good in spring, but it does seem a little out of place when dormant. I would have to do a lot of looking at the tree with a cloth covering that branch to make a decision. Good Luck with your choice.

    Grafting RMJ with Shimpaku (IMBEDDED PHOTOS)

    I just found this thread and am wondering how the grafts are doing? I see the grafts were done in July of last year, do you recommend this time of year for warmer climates or would spring be better for florida?

    trunk line opinions

    Update ..... I bit the bullet and cut the trunk down, I still need to taper the very top of the trunk to blend the taper in better. Then start growing branches to fill the tree out. Thanks again Brent for growing such superior material!

    Liove Oak Trunk Chop

    Sorry for hijacking your thread, that was not my intent. I got this as a gift from a club member to say thank you for working on her trees. It was in a 55 gallon drum when I got it, I did not dig it from the ground. I cut the top off in August 2006, repotted it in late December of the same...

    Mary Madison is living in the area of lake Placid, that is south of Sebring. She belongs to the ShoFu society in Sarasota. I agree with Bonsaimon about finding locals to talk to.

    Juniper advice

    I am posting a couple of pictures of a juniper I have been growing on for a few years. The first one is how the tree has been left, the branches have been pulled down to let light into the interior of the tree while growing the potential jin branches larger. The second picture is what I trimmed...
