Tamarack Larch

Post  Tom McCue on Thu Apr 08, 2010 3:02 pm

2 years ago I puchased the Tamarack Larch at our club auction for $1.00, I was in a collander. I stuck it in good soil in the big pot. fetilized and left it alone. It is now beginning to bud. Could some of you experienced bonsai artists give me a vitual (with cut lines) as I am inexperienced and unsure of where to go with design. The nebari looks pretty good, tree is about 20" inches tall, trunk maybe 2"inches. Or am I seeing something not there ans the tree should be tossed. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Tom, First off, never, ever, ever, never, toss a live tree. There's always something that can be done with it. Smile I'm far from expert, but if it were mine I'm do one of two things. Chop it off at about 1/3 its height, just above the second branch on the right side, or bury the whole tree raft style and then positon the pieces after it roots into a forest of smaller trees. I like multiple tree plantings so I'm always seeing things that way.
