Help styling new maple

Post  badabing888 on Sat Dec 21, 2013 1:16 am

Hi Guys,

I just got a new maple as stock, it looks to have been left to grow for a fair amount of time and i'm stuck as to what styling direction to take.

Is the lowest branch to low? it is leaning so straiting it would make the lowest branch much higher up the trunk









any opinions would be great!

I would probably keep the low branch and airlayer the top 1/2 of the tree in the late spring. The trunk is fairly thin with straight sections, but I think a nice informal upright could be made from the lower 1/3 to 1/2. There are lots of branches in the top which is why I would airlayer as opposed to just cutting it off. The images you posted are a little small to really see the details of the tree so it will be difficult to give much more than general feedback.

Hi Marty,

Thanks for the reply, interesting idea on the air layer i've never actually done one. as it was my first post if you click on the thumbnail is it still a small pic? if it helps i can grab some better close ups? thanks so much =o)

Definitely better when I click on them now - perhaps I did not do the right type of click last time. http://evergreengardenworks.com/ generally has some good stuff on airlayers and similar things if you decide to go that way.

Hi Marty,

Thanks for the reply!

What would be your opinion if not air layering ?

Regards

Daniel
