Let’s share pictures of what we are collecting in 2019 and the following years. This will inspire others and we can also get feedback on the potential material.

I will start with some trees that I am considering to collect.

Looks like you have some nice stuff coming @Vlad Cruceanu . I’m a bit jealous of food collected deciduous.

I keep a running list of potentials, here are a few:

First is a White Cedar that I have asked for permission to collect. He said he is not sure so I’m still hopefully and wondering if I can offer something. It’s very interesting in person.D3F27F4B-9CF9-4FEE-9242-BEA42512BE3F.png
Next is a Jack Pine that could be good.

Here is an awesome White Cedar that I believe is uncollectable for now.

The Jack Pine and the White Cedar are excellent!

Just a few hornbeams for now, but it’s warming up fast here so getting ready to go out again next week. It’s going to be in th 60s-70s next week, spring fever. View attachment 225711View attachment 225712
Just like last Feb, temps hit 70 so I went out and collected then the freeze returned and I had to schlep the trees in and out of the garage every day. Be ready, right @rockm

Here's another Yaupon Holly I dug up yesterday. It's got a large area of rot that's caused some pretty bad inverse taper, but I think it'll be a fun little project tree. I might turn it on its side to make a cool little cascade during the next repot a year or two from now.

At the moment I'm forced to stick to urban collecting opportunities, so I'm not sure this belongs here. In any event, Crown Memorial Beach in Alameda has a dunes stabilization effort that is going well, but has been invaded by pyracantha. I met the park botanist and he was happy to have our local clubs help remove these from the dunes. The good part was that digging in the dunes was incredibly easy, and the pyracantha were literally within 10 feet of parking spaces along the beach trail. Bad news - growing in sand means they had almost no feeder roots anywhere near the trunks. If it had been any other species it would have been a failure, but with pyracantha it's only a temporary challenge. I took eight of various sizes home, potted them in pumice, and all were budding out six weeks later.

True (PA) Yamadori!

A few weeks back I visited a farmers abandoned quarry near my vacation cabin in upstate PA.

On a rock ledge, in about 6" of soil/shale grit I easily collected a few trees. Unsure of the species, but looks like cherry or birch.

I was 20 years late to collect this hemlock growing on a rock. About 12" diameter.

I collected this Aspen growing in a crack on the side of the cut face of the quarry. Look carefully and you can see my marking tape from a mid- winter exploration.

Here it is in a "pot", just starting to push buds.

Have you had success with aspen before? I've often found nice ones at elevation, but have heard in the past that they are quite difficult to transplant successfully.

Wow, what a huge, fat butt Ponderosa, that will be wild - cool once it has settled in and is growing.

April 24, 2019 - Had some bonsai friends removing weed trees from the blueberry rows. A couple were accidentally or on purpose left behind because they didn't see much in them. This is an elm, possibly Ulmus rubra, slippery elm, otherwise it is Siberian elm, Ulmus pumila. I'm thinking slippery elm, just because of the huge amount of mucilaginous goo it created in the 3 gallon bucket of water I put it to soak in, until I could get to it. Sawed its roots off flat, to almost no roots. It was budding out nicely yesterday 5/19/2019.

I shortened the upright branches (trunks) since this photo was taken, not much above the main stump is left - this is a but ugly stump, don't know if I'll get any character to evolve. But I thought it was fun to do. And, being a weed tree, I'm glad it is gone from the blueberry row.

Chris that 2nd beech looks awesome - I reckon if you cut that thick upward branch off low,
the tree will be nicely proportional...

Here is a Beech I collected at the beginning of April...

April 6th: Severing all of the roots...
Beech 1.jpg

April 6th: Digging trench around the root ball so I can get to the monster taproot...
Beech 3.jpg

April 6th: Nice radial roots...
Beech 5.jpg

April 6th: Barely any roots after combing/detangling so I cut them all off. Beeches are tough, they can handle it...
Beech 6.jpg

April 30th: Showing signs of life after sitting in the shade for a few weeks...
Beech 9.jpg

May 8th: In full sun now, growing nicely...
Beech 10.jpg

May 13th: Still growing, but my dog wants the fertilizer and keeps damaging new growth, I need to put it up higher...
Beech 11.jpg

May 18th: New leader taking off after my dog broke the front branch off, smh...
Beech 12.jpg

The tree seems to be growing well, despite the setback of having to use so much energy to grow new roots. I'll take another picture soon and post it ASAP.

Going for a broom style or formal upright, depending on how it grows...
