American Larch Yamadori

Post  BrianDD on Mon Aug 06, 2012 9:05 pm

I collected this tree from my mothers yard. original height was 4ft with no foliage in the middle, made a great canidate for new leader and dead wood. The tree stands about 10 inches and has only been in training for a year.

Nice tree, of to a start.

Wondering why you call it a Yamadori though..?

Yamadori is a tree collected from the wild

Yamadori is so much more than a tree that was dug up somewhere. It is a tree that grew to maturity in the wild, with the 'forces of nature' pushing it into shape, naturally keeping it smal.

The tree you have looks like a seedling which was left to grow for 5 years under near-perfect conditions and then dug up. Don't think that would be considered yamadori. Otherwise I have loads of yamadori..

yamadori, well... another reason why i avoid using japanese :-) I just say 'a collected plant/tree, or dug-up tree'... then everybody is 'contented/satisfied' and i usually dont get these discussians.

a tree collected from the mountains, or a tree collected from the wild... or a 50 yo juniper with loads of character, collected from someones backyard. Whatever right.
you can collect a 'yamadori' on a mountain that sucks bigtime too, if you want a discussion about terminology.
But i'm not really interested in that.

anyway, cheerio

One of my favourite trees is a Gardendori, a maple I removed from my hedge Wink

Since "Yama" (山) means mountain in Japanese and I live in a plain, I also have quite a few Forestdori, but most of my trees are Nurserydori Laughing

Whatever you want to call it, I like it. it has good movement in the trunk. Looking forward to seeing it progress. If you remove some of that moss at the top of the soil, can you see any of the roots (nebari)? If you can expose some of the root flare, that might help it's presentation.

I like your style :-), you dont ride a 'Yama'ha-dori perhaps?
