White Cedar Design Help

Post  spinnikm on Wed Dec 21, 2016 9:57 pm

Hello all I have not posted much on here but I have a White Cedar (Thuja Occidentalis) that I collected this spring.  I am not sure on a few things about it's design.  Unsure if I will keep the deadwood spire, if the pot fits correctly, if I should hide some of the right trunk/root.  Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated.

I think I would keep the deadwood spire and also make the apex further up along the spire which would break the foliage into 3 major areas rather than the two you drew. This would probably require a slightly longer pot to the right for balance.

Your sketch is a very nice tree, but it is similar to a lot of other trees. Keeping the spire and extending the line would create a more unique tree.

Marty thats a good recommendation. After trying another virt more like you suggest, I think I like this option more.
