I would ditch the kickstand root.

Welcome to Crazy!

I think what it will bring for a "place you could go under" and hide from the elements, or hell, even the fear of being crushed by it...I think that alone would make people want to spend more time with the tree, to find out which it would be.

Looks like one of those Sandev hornbeams. i think just feed and water this season, let it grow out. you will need carving tools at some point.

this side looks intresting
the straight trunk poking out the top probably wont be needed.

Nice! When did you collected it?
I dug it in late Jan.

thanks for the input guys. I like the kickstand root but may like your idea better, sorce!
