My vision of an airlayerd Pinus mugo from 2008

Post  Herbert A on Wed Oct 16, 2013 8:30 pm

Hallo all

2008 i found an old pinus mugo. It was not possible to dig the tree, but airlayering is a very good alternative. If the tree is strong, he does in a few month new roots.
I startet airlayering in spring 2008 and could separete him in september 2008.




I removed the sphagnummoss and plantet the tree in a trainingspot. I use as a substrate akadama and pumice.

2009 in summer. The tree is not strong but healthy. It is ok for the fist year in a pot.


In spring 2010 i removed the rest of the sphagnummoss. 2008 it was not possible to remove the whole moss, because the new roots break very easily.
It is better for the tree to remove one or two years later the moss because it holds the water very good and this could be a problem for the tree.


The mugo was plantet in an smaller pot.

2011 in spring the tree had strong buds. This is a sign that he is ready for further Progression.

The whole tree is healthy.


In September he was strong enough for the first time to cut back and to start the progression.



I think this will be the Position for the tree.


After wiring the tree.

In 2012 it was time to check the roots again.

The last two years the tree made a lot of new roots. They look very healthy.


I removed all the soil to see if i can plant the tree in the right position.



I wanted to remove the thick root, but it was not yet possible because there are still many fine roots. But next time i can remove the thick root.

Very nice. Thanks for sharing. What method did you use to air layer: a/ wire turniquet b/ bark collar removal ? other?
Thanks

Me, too! Contrary to every common belief, I think....
I do share your vision for the tree, Herbert.
Eric is a genius and his pot suits your very special pine the best.
I am looking forward to seeing the photograph in live.

Thank you for the nice comments.

@yamasuri
I remove a ring of bark and use sphagnummoss. Nothing else.
By airlayeering a mugo you have a quote near 100% that the tree makes enough roots. It is easy as airlayering a trident marple.
If the tree is strong and healthy and the mugo grows in a good earth, so the tree needs 4-6 month to make enough new roots.
If the tree grows in rock and crushed stone it takes 2 years.

Stunning! That many roots! Wow! Your plan for the tree is very artistic, almost brilliant. Looking forward to the progression of your Mugo pine.

Thanks for posting,

Hi
a "Little" update about the mugo.

2013 the tree had a problem. Wood beetles demaged one branch so that he died.


The last two years i just watered and fertilized the tree.

Now he is healthy again and i can go on to design the mugo.

The buds are good and healthy.


So it was time to give her a new pot. I always saw this mugo on a stone slab.

It was a really hard work for about 10 hours. First a few hours for working on the deadwood. Than a few hours to prepare the Stone slab.
I demaged 2 drills because the slab ist very hard. After that 2 hours for repoting and Fixing the tree.

See the Pictures. The slab is 90 cm wide.


Drill wholes was hard work.


Than i had to edit the edge of the slab. I prayed that the slab does not break.


The result




The first test

Form a border with keto and Sphaghnummoss


Then i had to go outside because the tree and the slab togehter i could not carry trough the door because it is too big.

It was terrible cold and snowing.


The result of the first day.


A few days later a friend helped me to carry the tree upstairs from my working room into the garden.

Now he is on his place again.




The next days i have to finish the deadwood.


Some moss on the ketoborder


The last foto for today


In autumn or winter i will wire the branches into the final design.

I hope you enjoy.

Wow, Herbert......I'm a bit speechless. How did I miss this? Absolutely beautiful. I usually don't appreciate overwrought deadwood, but this.....this....I'm very impressed!!

Shocked Shocked thumbs up

great!
looks like a roaring dragon, ready to strike.
how did you airlayer it? did you take a ring of bark off or did you use a wire around the trunc to stop the sap flaw?
have you ever tried air layering on scott pines?
