fraxinus yamadori

Post  cram on Tue Oct 06, 2009 7:51 am

hello
i show you the first half part of a big fraxinus
i had to cut it in two trees by the middle deadwood part
i ll show you the secon part later...a kind of teasing

so this yamadori has been taken tree years ago...
i just show you what is my first works on it...and tell me the mistakes a made
anyway the difficulty with this species is to control the strenght
you can get conicity inversions even on the most tiny branchlets

well...i know this tree is special ...and it cant be beautifull for everybody
but i like this stranges sides of nature

so tree years ago...just when it was taken in the back mountains of Nice

this isone year later at the first styling...last winter
i called him "waimea"..like the hawaian wave
Very Happy ...i know it stupid
but the name will surely change when the dead wood will die...and the wave with it...Laughing

so ..stop joking...
the pot is a transition pot...just to build the roots

The wave

This tree is progressing nicely. With luck, you can preserve the deadwood and keep the wave going.

Nice work.

yes i was really stunned when i saw it on place
i got it in a gully where the water goes stronlgy during the rains...
i ve got the luck to live in a mountains landscape..very rough...a place for natural bonsai
there are a lot...but...you have to put full energy in your yamadori....it is not so easy...
i cut the trunks of 7 or 8 meters one year before collecting...
now i have to work has this tree deserve...
it will surely be the hardest part of the story

Certainly some of the best fraxinus I have seen. I have a few growing in my yard and always look forward to their blossoms in spring. They are creamy white racemes and very fragrant. Have yours bloomed? Would love to see that!

thank you very much...!
i see the bloom on the fraxinus in the mountains...the fragrance is evreywhere during the spring
but for the moment... this two trees didn t have any flower...maybe with time...?
i suppose the way we work the trees (during the building of a bonsai shape) is maybe restricting for blooming...
a little bit like with lagerstroemia...you have to let the branchs grow if you want any flower
