Andy Smith instigated a Chat around Ryan's Willow bog video on Pines, it made for a really good couple of hours











Andy brought in some of his pines for reference

Hi Pabling, hope you are keeping well
Yes its nice to have new faces coming into the club, and they are really good people they are learning fast and producing good trees
Hope that son of yours is looking after his trees, I have seen him in Swansea a few times and told him to come along with them but he has'nt turned up!

Regards Chris

Jerry found this big lump of Zelkova that has been about as far as I can remember for about 15 years, it had been re potted about 2 years ago and cut back a few times last year.
Jerry re potted it again and took away the rotten wood to uncover the natural dead wood






















Regards Chris

A few pic of my zelkova.
over head shoot.


A few more for the possible new front.



I plan to allow the tree to leaf out, see what i have and then very likely, I will greatly reduce, or totally remove the back stump. Leaving a left and right "V". If that's not working, very possible, further reduce to one central stump.
I think a broom is the way forwards.
