I’ve read that oaks tend to shoot it long tap roots with very few lateral roots near the base. Luckily for me the Buckley oaks, Blackjack oaks and the two live oaks I have collected have had quite a bit of feeder roots. This one has lots of potential. It’ll take years to get it into a bonsai style but I’m going to enjoy the process. Collected 3-24-20 near Abilene, Texas. Not sure I’m I’m going to keep both of the “trunks” I think the thicker leader has better movement and if I choose one to keep that one will probably win out. Thanks for lookingDE1A8934-571D-43EE-995E-496986D2FC42.jpeg69B2E23E-5465-4F7A-B111-C2E8023AE814.jpeg695620E3-F4C5-4D06-B289-D6B95594BD07.jpegF854D646-306C-4D14-8EB2-9035F45C54D7.jpeg79627EBF-CCBB-429E-A50A-1C55FF38CE9B.jpeg7D5B45EB-C27F-4B0A-A207-64A95ED5D80F.jpeg
