What an operation! Big improvement to an already amazing tree. Think your two furry helpers should be reprimanded for sleeping on the job though. Very Happy

Mesmerizing and well documented. The technique is made very clear by the photos --- no mean feat, that!

Great sequence, thank you for posting! Terrific advanced technique! I've seen sequences of large peg grafts like this with Trident Maples too. The only problem I could forsee (if I were trying this) is if the new branch has die-back near the trunk so that the parent tree has no living tissue to fuse to. Do you plan to seal the wound or wrap with moss to keep in moisture? What a fantastic trunk on this tree, a real beauty!

Very nice work.

I am wondering however, whether such operations would work in more temperate climates too. What time of year did you do this? You're in Spain right?

What a cool procedure with awesome pictures. It's amazing what you can get away with when working on ficus.

Your ficus is superb! I would like to to know a bit more about the tree. What species is it and how was the trunk created ? Is it from fused or grafted cuttings and/or from bringing roots down from above as you have beautifully demonstrated in the above sequence? Lastly how long did it take? Again my compliments on an excellent piece of work. Regards

Hi David

You have a great tree, and the photos from how you improoved the tree is nice, and easy to follow.
Question...did the new branch fuse all the way arround with the trunk. or will it mainly be the 3 arealroots that keep the branch alive.

Kind regards Yvonne
