Beautiful tree! The trunk has a lot of character Smile

Could I ask what you use to preserve the dead wood? I hear that rot can be a problem

this is deadwood created from live tissue - making it way more durable if treated quickly. the process: create deadwood feature. sand. allow to dry thoroughly. blow torch, wire brush. treat wood with wood glue diluted with water for easy application/ penetration. allow to dry. apply more coats as needed. use acrylic paint in preferred color for contrast.

best wishes, sam
