Quite possibly. I'm not entirely sure of the extent of it yet. I guess I'll see in the spring if nothing buds anywhere on that side. There are a couple of branches on the other side that also died.Oooh i see... do you possibly have die-back down that whole side?
Yes, it is indeed a Flower Market tree.Cool tree! Flower market by chance?
what have you learned regarding dieback? I am trying out fall pruning (works well for most of my deciduous) this season in hopes I can avoid dieback.
I’ve noticed pruning at bud break, AND pruning during the growing season causes some dieback back. Still figuring these out but lovely how hardy they are, no worries for winter!
This has been my experience, as well.. after/at budbreak, or during the growing season is kind of a gamble... I’d imagine more careful and proper handling would help.. I’ll try that.. next time.I’ve noticed pruning at bud break, AND pruning during the growing season causes some dieback back.
Yeah, I always leave room for die-back and use cut paste for cuts, at least in recent years. No doubt I made some n00b mistakes when I was first getting started for the second time around 2017. I did bonsai a bit in the 90s as well, but that hardly counts as I only had one tree (a juniper) and only one book on caring for bonsai… I didn’t know about any clubs or know anyone else who did bonsai back then.Just a thought, do you leave a stub when you prune to allow for die back? And do you seal all cuts? I do both as a matter of course on all my trees and luckily haven't had much problem with die-back.
As a disclaimer, I have not had an amur maple in my care for more than ten years now. So you shouldn't necessarily rely on the memory of an old fart.
