Ponderosa Pine collected @ 6000 ft. B&B Andy Smith. Arrived today , planted into a flat with some wood blocks at an angle so soil is maintained closer to the root ball. Topped w Sphagnum. I already have something in mind for it’s future but for now focus on ensuring success with recovery, will know how it went once candles open and buds form in fall.

I was wondering if that section would be bendable - nice!

I’ve always worried about putting raffia on a very heavily textured pine and what that does to the character of it long term. I’ve used raffia on quite a few junipers, but the bark is pealed off eventually anyways. May be worth asking around about what a years worth of tightly wrapped raffia would do to a heavily textured trunk.

Oh gotcha yeah true I should have pointed out was just referring to the straight section if that’s the direction I go in.. got a long time to let it marinade
