Collected olive windswept or semi-cascade?

Post  Brett Simon on Tue Aug 28, 2012 12:35 pm

Hi IBC

This is the second tree to come from the same clump of Yamadori we dug.
The front i have at the moment was chosen as the branch that comes out half way up the tallest trunk comes right at you, but the deadwood and trunk lines from the base are more interesting from this side.

In this picture you can see the branch going to the back and giving the tree some depth, but the base and deadwood are not as interesting. I need to decide how to overcome this problem.

Any feed back welcome.

Thanks Jim

Yes i agree with you about the front, but have to deal with that branch coming right out in your face, also need to compact the tree slightly.

Yes, there's quite a bit of pruning to be done, but you seldom get a tree that doesn't need that. I assume the branch in question is the one the red line points to? Will a change in planting angle do anything to help?

Hi Jim

Not to that but the branch that you have deleted. Where you reduced it to is where the branch comes right out at you, the now apex of your pic.In seeing the tree without the old long branch now gives me new ideas. So in a way you have answered my question anyway.
Thank you. Smile
