Tamarac Grouping

Post  Bolero on Fri Nov 11, 2016 10:59 am



A 3 year old American Larch (Tamarac) Grouping that I will be working on over the Winter/Spring, I will be removing the Rocks in Front and adding more Larch, the Tray is 21"x13"x 2 1/2", the Trees reach up 26"...Needles are starting to turn yellow and will be gone in a couple months....... Most of the taller trees are wired into the tray & I will not be able to do so with the New plantings so stability will be a problem until they root into the soil....Comments ????

now THIS is one of your best efforts in my opinion...

this one does not look forced, and the tray is good choice (at least from the provided angles)

i cannot see it, but is the base of the felled tree still in the planting ?

and in regards to the rocks, i like them, as they look pretty natural (again at the provided angle of view)

some foliage and branch manegment will really bring this along !

Thanks Kevin for your kind remarks...

The fallen trunk is one of the originals however it is not in the ground.

I may re-arrange and leave some of the rocks...

I visited your posting of the Bonsai Octoberfest and it was very impressive, especially the ending ...

it would be more believable with a reason for it being there (i.e. died and fallen, leaving behind a rotted stump)

The very ending was a Picture review of you and the Bonsai people...

As to the dead tree trunk...I will cut a short piece and stick it in the ground at one end to replicate its(the trunk) origin...

I've built a couple of these. One has a whole leaning dead tree in it.
I'll see if I can get the pictures upright for here.
Also there are ways to reduce the size of needles on these.
You can also force them to back bud for ramification.

I'm very interested in seeing your Groupings and hearing more of your workings...
