another successful collecting trip

Post  chappy56 on Sun Sep 23, 2012 9:36 pm

Thanks to my good friend Neil D. for inviting me along for a great day collecting.
Neil, Lee T. and myself managed to come home with a couple Scot's pines apiece. Never collected pines in the fall before but we'll see how things go.
The first one was a little different than most, it has a fork in the trunk part way up.
The other has some pretty nice movement down low. I hope to use it as a litarati style tree.

No, no pictures of Neil's or Lee's. I think they were a little ashamed to post theirs as compared to mine.
A little pinus envy. :-)

they certainly look robust! and enviable specimens both.
assume you're just going to get them cozy for winter at this point? ie: no root ball or branch work before spring?
[that's just a question, not an informed suggestion]

is there just the one branch below the fork of the smaller tree? and have you given much thought to its future?
it would be some work, but imagine you could bring one or the other of those forks down and back [toward the trunk] for a foliage cluster.
or, i suppose, jin one as an upright and coil/bend/twist the other fork where it seems appropriate.
or any one of half a dozen other routes.... meaning, lots of promise.

looking forward to follow-up photos next year.
