Here is a Ponderosa I collected back in the Rockies the summer of 2008. The pictures below were taken then.
I decided that it was time to work on it.I always knew what I wanted to do with the tree and the chance to work with good friends on trees presented itself I took this tree along. I learned quite a bit from a good friend of mine on some bending....
Now the after shots. The tree turned out pretty nice and looks much better in person. I look forward to getting it into a pot soon. This was just an initial styling and as it back buds and fills in it will be a special tree for me.
Welcome to my blog! I will try to keep postings up to date and informative as possible. This will be a blog about actually working on trees and getting my hands dirty. I like to work on trees and am not one of those guys who think they know everything and never shows a tree..... so folks lets keep it fun and work on some trees!
