I hope this one looks a little healthier next season

This picture is from when I collected it months ago I only took a little bit of foliage off to balance out the loss of some root upon collection but I still probably shouldn't have touched it.. since then a couple little pads of foliage have died could be from me touching it or could also equally be from that root 2loss upon collection.. I couldn't really intimately remove it as I was working and kind of had to be quick about it so I didn't get any Guff for tree hunting on the job lol

The Cascades section is still intact so if worse comes to worse that will be the primary foliage but it had a decent amount to work with at first I was a little bit bummed out but sometimes you are places you know you won't make your way back to and have to do what you have to do and considering I didn't spend a penny I try not to beat myself up too much

As far as non-deciduous I also have a couple little arb or cedar looking things that I pulled from a whole field of them down by the Cape May point

I don't really think they want you digging them up but it's just a Sandy Sun beating field full of dwarf trees and I always keep my hori-hori in my car for a quick little something something I called it a souvenir
I have to take a picture of the other two from the field they are small in comparison to some of the other ones out there but they would be more of a production to remove

You can see green buds whilst still had ice on it this was just about at the break of winter so I thought I was in the clear but even though it made it through the worst of winter it just couldn't hang in there for spring all three of my Norway crapped out
the middle one in the row picture isn't exactly the best but the other two I really liked I had pulled them from a fence line at a property I was doing Tree Service\ removal they obviously have been lopping them close to the ground for years and they gave me a good season and I was super excited for their future
All new growth at that point was reduced in size and everything and went from long leggy internode's Too Short compact growth habit

picture of them alive was September 24th of last year according to my photo gallery and was collected in early August.. come to think of it they weren't all three at the same time but right around the general time of year but the study is one was the first of that batch and by the time it was done for that year I had a couple little branches that hardened off around the crown
And my final non Juniper comment is that you can see how well it recovered LOL say yes take that little devil inside

Just sharing my others

That weird one that looks like hurricane is blowing it over actually pulled out of a large ground Mound juniper bed in a parking lot somewhere it was sticking out like a sore thumb so I took the liberty of extracting that strange sob

These are the three that I took from the Cape May point inland of the Beach..any idea of identification are they some sort of cedar

I may not always juniper, but when i do, i try to make it count

It needs to be wired so the foliage appropriately faces up and not to the left but I pulled this from a 99% Deadwood bush and it's split at the root base where all the trunks meet because it was hanging on by a thread hopefully some of the fine roots that came with are enough to keep that pad alive

Had this tall heavy-duty pot so I just flipped a 5 gallon Nursery pots inside of it and this on top of it since I don't have anywhere to make a pedestal at the moment or anything like that and it was in the way going down the back steps
