Went to the nursery today to see what was left of there 5gal MC... Most had died because they just don't do well in the ground here. The two left were sticks and look like they are on their way out. I asked the guy if they are getting more in and he laughed and said, "Nope! Can't even sell the 15 gal trees in the back." WHAT!!! So he brought me to the back... out of 8 20 foot trees there were 2 I really liked.
Price was right.. and even better if bough more.

This one has some nice taper... pic doesn't do it justice. Base is around 6"wide. May through it in the ground for a bit.

This triple trunk should be fun. Thinking of carving the large trunk on the left and flat toping the center. Smaller trunk not sure yet.
The base is about 10" wide.

I am in! I can head down on Saturday. We can number them and draw numbers from a hat for the split.

Yeah, how they doin?
Hey! Yep we cleared um‘ out of MC!😀
I chopped and repotted all 4 a few weeks ago.... within the past week they have all popped with new growth.
So far I’ve decided to do one formal upright and one flat top… One of them is screaming to be carved so I have been playing with that a bit.
I think they both killed each other over the triple trunk one 😂😂😂
Lol I claimed that bad boy for myself ... was the first one I saw before I told Randy about the find.
I’m super excited about this one.... going to be a bit of a challenge designing what is essentially 3 trees in 1.
I’ve actually been putting a post together to get a little bit of feedback… Found some pretty cool reference.
Post soon!

@AZbonsai How are you doing?

Ears are burning :) chopped mine as well. Tough summer heat last year.. I am batting .600 still have 3 out of 5. Looking great and repotted. Should have a better summer. Two I lost could not get out of black pots "dammed if you do, dammed if you don't" situation last summer. I guess I choose wrong for those two. Damm! :) looking forward to a good year out of them. May take to the club meeting next week for a tie down and trim meeting. Your still the AZ Montezuma King Aaron Good hearing from you!
