Found this awesome nebari at landscape yard. I reported and cleaned it up. Probably not going to touch it until spring but I was trying to decide which branches to keep etc 0619181228.jpg

Depending on where that back trunk starts...
I would be in here...but that new lead looks dead?

I Thought that was this tree...

I have been concerned about its entire 2 trunkedness...

I don't know if you can get these to "Fuse"..

But it seems the wide base is reliant on both those trunks remaining...which means hiding the joint...or getting them to fuse becomes paramount.

At this point...I would find out of you can get them to fuse....(look for older ones and study them, ask...I believe @Walter Pall recently invaded THG with these....I would trust his knowledge on them for this endeavor if so)

Depending on what you find...
May be letting it grow bonkers for years os called for....

That base is definitely a good attention grabber.....
If a difficult mission to keep it that way, it's the mission!.

I removed some more of the soil and found that there is 2 separate trunks all the way to the roots. I blocked out the smaller trunk in the new picture. You can see that most of the base is on the main trunk and it has better form as a single trunk. I think that will be my plan. Maybe be attempt to separate and save both trees or just remove the smaller trunk. 0622180944.jpg

Ok change of plans. Walter Pall answered and said they would eventually fuse. So I'm going strip the bark between and wire they together. Then just let nature take it's course
