I said back in part one that I would give Mario an update on his trees from the weekend, so here goes.
The main tree discussed and worked on was his Juniper. A big issue was the amount of juvenile foliage but I’m assured that’s not my fault. You’ll just have to wait for the video covering this from the Saturday workshop 🙂
This is his Shohin Japanese White Pine before the workshop
Not a lot of major work needed but Peter did some removal of branches here and there and worked though the bud selection for next year.
This might be a slightly better front.
Gives you an idea of what was coming off.
Just for reference this was it back in July 2011.
The satsuki also got a tidy up with a slight trim. Not much required after the major pruning back in June. Before and after below.
Also had a look at the black pine but I have no photos.
