    Did I murder my DAS?

    Did some 'initial styling' mid-Oct. on an Alberta Spruce I picked up at Home Depot, had growth down to the trunk and fairly horizontal branches to go with the really thick trunk, so I figured it was worth a try (and 40 bucks...) The idea was to eventually get a krummholz windswept sort of plant...

    Picea Glauca Yamadori test tree.

    I was up north last week transporting an RV back to Vancouver and wanted to collect a few yamadori in various places along the back to test the conditions they were growing in for a future collecting excursion. I found one place that had some amazing trees. Dozens and dozens of trees worth...

    future picea forrest

    So I bought 5 piceas I want to make a forest on a slab some day. Probably 3 years from now as the trees aren't the healthiest. 1 and 5 being like half the size of 4 and 5, and 2 being in between 1. This is kinda the order I am thinking by now... but can change in time. Plan: fall year 1...
