    Hornbeam Scouting -> collecting Spring ‘21

    Ive had super bad luck collecting these from N. PA. Do a search on collecting these, there is good info here, and they get treated differently from other deciduous trees. Best of luck CW

    I neglected my trees this summer

    Outstanding @Sunwyrm ! I really like the way you managed the edges of the pond and didn't just line up flat rocks, as is often the case. Very naturalistic. And the large stone on the bottom of the pond is a revelation. I like that a lot. Only thing that would make it better would be if the...

    The Hemlock (Tsuga) Discussion THREAD.

    Biggest problem is that I can't get them to backbud. I think that is pretty much universal with Eastern Hemlock. And this year the Spotted Lanternfly were feeding on some landscape hemlock so there is that to watch out for now. CW Edit I just saw your location, so you likely have Western...

    Common Pear

    @conerDash, do you mind me asking about your roof in the background? Looks to have a pipe rather than a gutter on it. Or is it just a very narrow gutter because of the small roof area? I ask because gutters are a problem for me (lots of trees) and I've thought of using surface tension to...

    The Hemlock (Tsuga) Discussion THREAD.

    Wintering Shelter

    Put them on the ground on the shady side of the house, cover the pots with mulched leaves. Check on them in Spring. If all your trees are hardy, that's likely all you need. CW

    Any examples of Pitch pine/ Pinus rigida?

    I've looked for these at nurseries, but never see them. Where is the nursery you are referring to? I'm growing some from seeds that I stole collected from roadside trees. CW

    Best Bonsai find so far.... Literati for free

    Please know that if it is a Hemlock, and I think that it is, back-budding is nearly impossible. Choose your cuts carefully. CW

    @jmmzpsu14 Chase Rosade often attends the PBS club meetings. You may see him differently in a non-commerce setting. CW

    Collecting in Pennsylvania

    The guy has the pedigree, and I've not found him to be that way at all. He's a good fellow, but sure you'll get his attention if you're spending, rather than looking for cheap advice. CW

    Scratch the bark. If it smells of wintergreen you got a sweet birch. CW

    Life, death and Taxus.

    If it were me, I would cut off that curvy right side branch, and plant the rest of the bush in your garden, Yews are pretty tough in the ground and can take severe cuts, but I haven't had a lot of luck getting them potted. CW
