    Beech forest

    Yesterday I made this forest of 15 European beech saplings. I'm pretty pleased with the result so far, still needs some guy wires here and there. Also, the trunks were almost all the same thickness. I'll probably add a few seedlings when I repot it and maybe take out 2 or 3 'bigger' trees...

    Jade Forest

    Jade Forest

    I was given a 10 lb bag of Jade cuttings a year ago. I sorted through the bag to find the most unique branches, and branches that had matured to "bark". I propagated the cuttings in cactus soil for 3-4 months. I have them set in their positions, and their roots are stable! Next step, getting...

    Beech forest in the making

    Deciduous trees are slow to create. Unlike a yamadori conifer, which can be designed in as little as a day, deciduous trees are designed and built slowly over a long period of time. Here is a Japanese Beech forest that I started almost 3 years ago. I wasn't in the habit of taking pictures...
