MEGA TRIDENT MAPLE AIRLAYER

Post  Tampa Shorty on Sun Jun 25, 2017 5:36 am


"Somewhere over the branches"


I've never seen roots so lovely!


What a nice body-- I mean trunk!


A new blade on a reciprocal saw made quick work of this.

All potted up and placed in it's new growing spot.


I was so surprised (pleasantly), I had to come down from the ladder and breath for a moment as I recomposed.


This "airlayer" was 15  months in the making. It was more than 6ft tall overall, 3ft tall on main trunk and near 5 inches in diameter at the base. The trunk is very barky and except that it was growing in an upright position would have been much more difficult to root. I cut all branches back after potting, placed the tree in a shady place and watered well (0-10-10 was added to the water).  I will monitor for revitalization and then I will move the tree (in 2-4 weeks) to a more sunny area. It will be allowed to grow untouched for the next 2-5 years depending on regrowth and vitality, not to mention what my work load allows.
