    Research hasn't answered this deadwood question...

    Hello, Long time lurker on this wonderful forum, but 1st question. I am the type of person who does copious online research and searches previous threads before ever asking questions, but I cannot answer this: does a tree with a completely deadwood trunk & limbs grow larger? I ask because I...

    Hollow Cercidiphyllum stump

    This Cercidiphyllum japonicum stump spent several years in a corner of the back yard in the garden centre where I work, and for the last 3 I've been watching it rot, hoping it would gain character. The owner told me I can have it, and to show him what I can do with it, so I started some work on...

    Natural deadwood impressions

    On my holiday in Chalkidiki, Greece I found few very interesting pieces of deadwood worked out by sea. So I couldn't resist and filled all remaining space in the car with them and transported them all 1400km back home. Fortunately my wife has understanding for this. I include some photos of...

    Ficus question.

    This is my first post on this forum, and I'm pretty new to the bonsai game. I got a tree today that I could use some advice on. It's a ficus (not sure what one), with a lot of deadwood on it. From what I understand, the deadwood has been untreated for a couple years and it still pretty solid...

    Deadwood Chinese larch

    Does any one have experience with deadwooding the top of a larch sorta going for the lightening strike look. Is that possible with these trees they are not very common where I live.
