First time Yamadori'er

Post  giga on Thu Mar 28, 2013 5:09 pm

I bought my first house this winter and I've been seriously chomping at the bit to finaly get into bonsai's. Before I lived in a apartment and dabbled with some ficus bonsai(lame S curves). I just built a 2 four foot two self bonsai benches in my back yard that have nothing on them. I scoped out a couple places this winter for collecting( in the woods that I got the ok to collect). There are a couple tree's that I got my eye out to collect. Is it safe to collect them this weekend? I'm new to yamadori collecting and I live in virginia beach and the temp get as low as 45 and mid 60 during the day now. I don't know the exact species but one is a jumiper, a pine(mugo maybe), a honysuckle , and I think the other is a wild cherry(I think). Can anyone give me some adive for my area and yamadori collecting. I watched a couple video on digging the tree but need adive on when in my area.

Now is a good time in this area to collect all of those species you mention. Tidewater is chock-full of Loblolly Pines, pinus taeda. So, I would be surprised if you have discovered a Mugo pine growing wild around here, unless it was former landscape material.
You missed a great opportunity about three weeks back to go on a club-sponsored collecting trip to Gloucester, VA. Some members collected some really nice Carolina Hornbeams, Carpinus caroliniana a few interesting little Virginia Pines, Pinus virginiana and a few other odds and ends that day for future bonsai material.

So I collected the tree and was wondering if I should keep it in a shaded area for a little bit at first?
