Yamadori Hawthorn

Post  F. Waheedy on Fri Aug 28, 2009 10:15 am

Hi everyone,

I've just bought this massive yamadori hawthorn. The tree was collected (With permission) in Staffordshire. It stands 112 cms tall from the rim of the pot and the trunk is 23 cms wide at the base. I like the movement of the trunk but would love to have your expert opinions about the potential and future of the tree.

Many thanks in advance.

Regds,

Faisal

The future of this tree is great. But it will take a long time to form the branches.

Thank you Nick & Paul,

I do understand that this it at least a 5 year project. It was only collected this year in April so needs to be left alone for a couple of years.
I think its got beautiful trunk line and loads of potential for carving.
I'm worried about leaving the tree out in winter. Any suggestions?

Regds,

Faisal

Your Hawthorn has bags of potential. As for the winter it should be fine if the soil is free draining. All my trees stand out all winter, as long as they are protected from freezing wind they are fine. Dont get much really cold weather in London anyway.

Thanks Will. I'm only concerned because few of my trees died last winter. I will make sure this one is protected from freezing winds.

Hi Faisal. I love hawthorn, and I love big, chunky material like this. I'm jealous!

I can see this making a stunning tree in a few years time, given the right treatment. I shall watch it's progress with great interest.

Hi HR,

I hope you're right. I have a few large material trees which, in the next few years, will make stunning trees. So I'm told.

Lets see.

Thanks for lifting my spirits :-))

Hi Faisal hope your tree lives to become a bonsai . but dont buy yamadori under 2 or 3 years after collecting make sure tree is tied down tight in pot no movement and cover pot with pieces of slate or glass tight to trunk to run water away from pot best of luck Paul
