This is a piece of stock I purchased from Evergreengardenworks. I wanted to show what kind of quality material is out there if you look hard enough. This is a monster cork elm, the trunk is 6 or 7 inches across. There is a nice base of roots there, and branches already started in some good spots. This will be designed as a tight, muscular tree with the trunk as the main focus. The branches will be thick, short and gnarly. I am already thinking of what kind of pot to complement the massive rugged trunk. Any suggestions ? Glazed or unglazed ? BTW, I paid $600 for this tree, and I consider that a steal.
