Hawthorn day

Post  chris on Fri Jan 11, 2013 7:40 pm

About a week ago Anthony and Malcolm came up from Wessex and we spent all day playing some Hawthorns
This tree was collected with the rock in it

The above Hawthorn has been collected 3 year and ha been growing strongly for the last 2 years so it was time for the first styling
This is one to keep an eye on in future

Next one, this is a crazy little tree but very interesting after a lengthy discussion we decided on a way forward to make some sense and an image that would be right to move forward with

Sometimes its the the smaller simpler trees that can catch your eye, this tree is one of them for me. In the right pot in a few years time this is going to be a little stunner

Hi Chris,
wow thats a large wound on that first one! Now I some were heard about a technique that could have reduced that wound considerably! But I could be mistaking! Wink

I could not help myself! Have a nice weekend!
Cheers,

Hi Andy and thank you for the reply

Hi Hans, O yes it would be the perfect technique but there was an old wound there already at the back of it, I think we will carve that branch eventually anyway, it seems to out way the rest of the tree.
I have used "that" Technique on two trees since Burrs hopefully the results will be good.
See you next weekend

Regards Chris

I am sworn to secrecy (and Hans is Bigger than me). This is referring to a technique that Hans related to us, at BURRS this year, he is writing an artical on it and until it is published he asked to refrain from explaining it in public so to speak.
This is not Hans being secretive about his knowledge all will be reveled a soon a the publication is out there, it enables you to heal big cuts fast and leads on to putting taper into parallel roots for eg!!!!!!!! I have said enough.

Here is an update on some of the hawthorn in this thread.
Last Saturday  myself and Anthony spent a great day making the next step with these trees.
In Anthony's capable hands these trees have thrived and it was a joy to style them.

We needed to do very little to this one, the feel of the wild hawthorn that this image creates is for me breathtaking, maybe the best image of a natural hawthorn that I have ever seen
