Parsons is just a guess at this point, feel free to correct me if that does not seem to be the correct species. I got this at a local auction a few months back, mostly just to wet my feet with larger material and to support the local club. The bottom sections were all covered in bark but about a month back I was able to reveal large portions of deadwood (there is likely more in there). That feature alone is very interesting, but to be honest I don’t know where to start training this tree. Perhaps this would be better suited to the beginners thread, but I was thinking this might require more intensive techniques such as grafting. The previous owner successfully grafted a small bit of itoigawa closer to the base but it is still rather small and weak. At any rate I would appreciate any insight into improving this tree that ya’ll can provide. Junipers don’t seem to be popular in my area and I haven’t met anyone who could provide more guidance in person.
