Oh, Frary? Posting pretty girls in this thread does not give you a waiver from the rules! You owe us a picture of one of your trees
I wondered if someone would say something. How about a tree that's going to be mine this spring?
Jack pines I found yesterday out walking with Rupert.
Its much better than it shows in the picture. 20180407_124717.jpg

I dug this chinese elm up from the growing bed, i want to develop it as a sumo style trunk, it may go back in the ground to continue the process, the plan to develop more height, movement and a better transition

its in the ground now for further development, theres a chop there that should heal over in a couple years, some movement and taper and a good basic structure in place

Looks like a Parson's Juniper? How long have you had this one in training?

Sorry, I just realized this was maybe directed toward me. I bought this in an online auction 5 years ago. A gathered juniper from CA, thought to be a San Jose juniper. The wire marks were so bad in places, I was pretty mad about the whole deal. The foliage was about triple what you see now. I’ve worked it back hard, I think I’m to the final frame and now to build it back. It does seem to come back to mature foliage pretty easy.

I was going to get rid of it at our club auction this spring. After looking at random pictures of my garden, I decided I liked how it looked in the garden and maybe I should work it harder, take some risks and quite babying it along.

This is a Black Hills Spruce that was originally collected by Andy Smith and sold to me by Don Blackmond. I repotted it this spring but didn't get very aggressive with the roots. It was still in the grow box that I assume it was planted in after collection. I think this pot is probably still too big but I like it for now.
