    Juniper collection, with a good story along with it

    trying bonide but should I use a suffocation based oil on newly collected trees!? Fore, I was under the impression that juniper scale was to be treated differently... To sharpen my question a bit, I'm wondering whether a horticultural oil like bonide should be used on recently collected...

    help me!!! I'm worried about all my conifers, the second paragraph refers issue These all seem to be still alive, as I have one which lost a branch and it is noticeably differently dry from the rest. I see the cuts on the mulberry need cleaning, and the wood seems to be acting like dead wood...

    Juniper collection, with a good story along with it

    Poink88 I would agree that we do :) Don I was thinking the same thing but also hoping it would sport from somewhere closer on the trunk better suited or is that wishful thinking? I say this because I actually like the foliage, it's tight adult foliage that only can be separated from shimp by...

    The Tree Thread

    I spent no less than a few hours looking at all the awesome pictures in this thread, this rule should exist for every thread...

    Juniper collection, with a good story along with it

    First off, I was tempted to name this thread top notch juniper material, bc I did that when I was new here and made myself feel like an idiot and wanted in some way to redeem this. However, I think if it is anything at all, the difference between what I then considered good to what I now...

    White Cedar Yamadori

    real beauty fourteener! absolutely great, I like the back better myself only because of the live veins' connection and meandering. But nevertheless both the tree is gorgeous, although it does kinda look to me like the deadwood is humping the live vein :P

    Is Nick Lenz's Book Outdated?

    amkhalid hit it on the head, Nick's specialization is definitely Larch and Thuja, both of which are greatly explored and a wealth of good info is in his book on those species. As an eastern collector, his info on thuja and communis has been my bible (unfortunately I cannot keep larch alive near me).

    Possible needle cast

    I thought I saw a white shell in your first picture like the kind my scots pine had, I thought it was a type of scale. It gave me the same type of yellow spots after they sucked down the sap on a part of a leaf but didn't kill it, Do you see other white shells like that?

    A question for Vance Wood

    Why I don't use turface anymore (with pics)

    I also pulled turface from my soil mix and the soil I'm selling, after seeing how my trees responsed to it, I felt I had to pull it. Nothing flourished in turface by itself, everything with pumice by itself flourished. My supplier of pumice has offered me a fired clay about 1/4" clean, but I...

    winged elm

    I like this tree and I don't think you should shorten it one bit, it has a nice wild feel to it with the scar on the right, removing that removes it's uniqueness imho, congratulations it is a lil beaut! Scar and all :)
