So, one of my friends came by today with a Procumbens Juniper... That had been staked to grow tall at some point. He had bought it quite a few years ago and had it in a big pot ceramic, that just broke... So hence the trash bag. Whats up with all the trash bag trees that seem to be making their way to my house, I don't know? But, this is how he brought it over... And after all the years it is still in nursery soil.
When the tree showed, up half of it was dead... But had obviously died quite a while back, perhaps from to deep of a pot and staying to wet? Who knows... but, seems since a good portion had died off, my friend had started neglecting it... which in all actuality is probably for the best, seeing I think he was watering too much before... and him neglecting it probably saved the tree.
Now he asked me if I wanted to buy it off him... I told him let me clean out all of what is dead, and I will let him know... So, I have removed all that is dead, and decided I would take some photos and ask everyone here what they thought, seeing that often we see these posts all the time by people starting off of material they find at a nursery.
Specs of the tree are that it has a telephone pole for a trunk, not really much of a taper... has 2 lower really thick branches, and a ton of wispy branches in between, is 100 percent juvenile foliage. Height is 28 inches tall, Width 30 inches wide, and it has a 2 inch trunk.
So, my questions are, would you consider this Good Material?
Would you Buy it?
And if so... what would you do with it? Does anyone see a tree in there?
To heavy of a trunk to really do a major bend... So, would you Chop it? or leave it the length it is? Jin the top? Add a shari?
Not interested in what I can do with it... already know where I would go with it... If i was to buy it, of which i have not decided. Interested in where you would go. Lets see the difference of views!
Oh, and just for fun... I will add a poll as well, for those who prefer to linger instead. Even though I can probably guess the results!
Thanks in Advance!
