Growing seasons around the world vary widely and it is difficult to get a perspective on what someone says when we don't know where in the world they are. If you go to the upper right hand corner and click on your Icon, you can add your location and people will be able to customize advice for you, and you might connect with another local. (We want to know where you are doing this.)

I stumbled across about a dozen Mulberries (seedlings in Michigan are almost always crosses between the native Red and the Chinese weeping White common in landscapes). These were in a lawn of an industrial building where I collect seeds & seedlings of Zelkova under one tree in a line of 6 or 7. The lawn is never watered and so doesn't grow well or long. It just sort of exists. Anyway, these saplings get mowed high a few times a summer so they are all under 3 inches high. The best ones had long tap roots and came out poorly, but most were collectable as such and I think about 8 lived. They are all sort of like Angel. Seeing what you have done inspires me to try the same thing. I just happen to have an extra 8" wide narrow oval from Vietnam like this one that has a Wild Tamarind trio...

Not quite up to your standards, but I'm still stealing your idea.

the dude with the best growing conditions on the planet.
do you think the branches (where they touch the soil) can root??
We have a tree in Pretoria called the wonderboom (ficus) that has done that...

The branch that buried in the soil rooted. I trim the root from time to time to avoid the other end of the terminal grow bigger

I'm heading to Charleston this weekend, but probably won't be able to convince the family to stop and see the Angel again on this trip. You've got "spreading" pretty well, but there's a strong portion that forms a canopy as well that your composition doesn't seem to have developed yet. On one of my trips a docent or some of the literature there said that the Angel Oak casts a shadow on an acre of land. It definitely has a presence.

He's only one year into the project. Angel is 300 to 400 years in the making.
