Chinese Banyon Ficus

Post  Eric Newton on Sun Nov 08, 2009 3:21 pm

This is a ficus I picked up back in Sept. of 2007. Progression pics along the way... Took the tree to a Jerry Meislik workshop this year. He showed me his kerf cut technique to lower large branches, helped to define the foliage planes, and made me feel good about the progress of this tree. The pot is Chinese.

Nice tree eric. Definately bigger than I thought. Do you pictures after the work in the last three pictures was done?

Thanks Ricky,
Actually the nov. 09 pics (the last set of formal pics) are the latest pics. I posted them out of order, sorry. The Meislik workshop was in July of 09 and the Nov. pics are right after a slight trim and wire removal. I did not take pics before the Meislik workshop. Here are some pics after with the wire still on in my yard.
