Hey All,
I'm particularly asking Vance W. this one. But anyone may chime in. First let me digress.
In a few short weeks in will be spring, My college Hort teacher has given me the green light
to grub up a nyssa sylvatica that she no longer wants in the tree I.D. garden. The tree
has a 1-3" caliper, and is approx 7'ft tall. (I'm thinking a 5-10 gal. nursery tree). Its been there not more than 2 years.(In ground)
My question is I know to make this a believable bonsai, Ill need to reduce it, will it take well to a drastic chop. and will it back-bud well after wards?
Well?
Thanks for all your questions,
ps The only reason she's wants it removed is because its getting (get this) windswept where it is located. ;)
Thanks again,
Sincerely,
K Johnson
