So I bought this tree at a the Dragon auction, these pictures where taken in the 9th November 2015
This is the tree before wiring and styling… am also planing on cutting the top back to the branch leaning to the right for better taper.
So these pictures where taken today of the Larch buds swelling. I like the green buds against the darker bark
Here is the top off cut… I counted 22 rings means the tree is over 22 years old
He is the bud I will hopefully use to develop the second left branch, its the bud in the left crotch of the stump
Here is another bud from the trunk I would like to develop into a branch
and now the child trunk that I will hopefully develop over the next few years
