Hi all, I love projects. Not seedling projects so much but something I think can eventually become something of a decent tree without having to wait 20 years. I came across this Katsura tree at a landscape nursery last week. You should have seen the look on the guys face when I told him to get the loppers and take 5-6 feet off. I learned that these are similar to a trident maple so should be able to reduce it quite a bit this winter. I really liked the big ding in the main trunk and the low branches. very unusual for a nursery tree. I'm thinking this may be my first hollow trunk design. What are your thoughts? Also does anyone have any do's or dont's with this type of tree?
