    Should I dig it up and pot it?

    Go for it in my opinion. Even if it dies you will learn from that experience. Everybody kills trees and as long as you grow and learn from every death. Its fine by me.

    Large Yamadori JBP Progression

    I think thats out of my comfort level. The bark is like 3/4" in some areas and I'd have no idea how to even slice a clean slit into the cambium with all that bark. Thank you for the suggestion though. I appreciate hearing peoples suggestions.

    Large Yamadori JBP Progression

    whoaaaa you actually did it. I thought u were being kinda sarcastic when you told me that lol. You definitely have balls of steel. You added so much more character to that treee! Great job. I have another pine of similar size to yours. I may have to get it a try on that one.

    Large Yamadori JBP Progression

    I've done a few approach grafts. Where are you thinking it needs grafts? I'm still not even sure how this tree will be styled or how to incorporate that left branch into the design.

    Help with pine borer beetles PLEASE

    I already have the liquid bayer would it be overkill if I treated the roots with that AND put the granules at the same time? To get immediate effect and a long lasting slow release one.

    Help with pine borer beetles PLEASE

    So first confirm if these are them. I found 2 of these today on 1 large tree I recently worked on but the tree showed no signs of any larva burrowing inside while I was carving it. I saw another one, two days ago on the same tree and 1 on a different JBP today. I'll be going out every night...

    Large Yamadori JBP Progression

    I hope it'll be ok too. Pretty sure the branches i have will live just worried that parts of the trunk may die off near the back and side. Time will tell I guess. Counting the rings at the top most cut it was about 20-25 years old. So I'm assuming if i was able to count lower on the trunk it...

    Large Yamadori JBP Progression

    Which front do you guys prefer? This was the original I was going with but after removing so much bark I'm not sure if its the best anymore. Second option. Ignore the branches sticking out on the left. Those can be easily cut and wont be seen.

    Double budding? JBP

    This is new to me, looks like the fresh new candles on my jbp are sprouting new candles already and those are extending again. Is this normal?
