So, this one was kind of a bonus. As I was collecting Spruce # 1, I had originally thought this was growing off of the same root system. Problem was it was on the other side of the rail, and I thought it would need to be sawed off. Turns out it was on it's own roots, and I decided it would become my "spruce test dummy." If I can recall, the pictures should be from right after collection in April of last year, followed by a late summer styling '10.

Over the last couple days, I removed all the wire, and got the dremel out to work on some of the deadwood. I then wired nearly everything that was left. I'm including shots of the deadwood, the tree after wiring (no placement), and after placing the branches. I will no doubt tweak it a bit over the coming days. I find that by posting the pictures, I get a better idea how to "fix" the trees once I look at the pictures for a bit.

A few shots after the branches were placed.

Thanks Rob, You are right about it being a while, methinks. Gonna have to try some things to get the foliage denser of the next couple seasons. Then it should be time for another styling. I'm learning on this one, as I have two larger ones with much better potential.
