Dawn Redwood Group

These are 4 Dawn Redwoods that were field grown for about 8 years. They are nothing special and I thought the best way to make something from them would be to put them together in a group. This is it after 1 year in a pot with basic primary branch structure being created.

Four trees in a group I hear you say… I only had 4 but, as one is a twin trunk, I count it as five 🙂 The pot is totally unsuitable to create the best effect but I’m worried at this point. They have a very long way to go.

I gave it a light trim.

Some carving work required over the Winter.
