Finally got around to sorting a few air layers this week.
First up was this Korean Hornbeam. This is the front as it sits now.
This will be the new front. However the top of the taller trunk is heavy and needs removed. It will make a nice little shohin clump if layered off.
Layer point marked.
Cambium layer removed.
Layer in pace.
And this Cork bark Elm with poor nebari.
And this Zelkova which will make a nicer broom having removed all the tall leaders.
A Chinese Elm that I’m layering for a customer. The tree came to me in poor health and had lost a lot of lower branches. Best option is to layer off the top and use the nice base as a new tree.
Dis a few more but was on a roll and forgot the camera 🙂
Great ideas to inspire the rest of us mate. Gonna refer to your older posts that explain the process step by step and hopefully I’ll have some successful layers myself at the end of the end.
