Hi Nik,
I like it as it reminds me of the Alaskan Cedars (Nootka Cypress = Callitropsis nootkatensis), we have around us....as shown below.
Cheers G.

G'day Nik...

To me, it looks like Ma'Nature had a Hand in the design...outstanding work my friend...

I gives me an idea (on a much smaller scale) of what to so with a Thuja I have in a one gallon nursery can...

Thank you Nik...

Hi Nik. I too like this tree at the height it is - mostly because it reminds me of trees similar to those in gman's post.

Who made the pot?

I don't know actually. On the bottom of the pot there is a signiture written it Japaneese fonds, so I can't read it. I can take a photo of it and show it to you if anyone recognizes it.

For beginners unfamiliar with this cultivar, it is Thuja occidentalis 'Smaragd,' northern white cedar or arborvitae. It is sold in this country in every garden center where it could possibly grow, as 'Emerald,' which is the English translation. Collected arborvitae are popular with bonsai artists in the Northeast, but this cultivar is a great improvement on the native form. The foliage is more dense, it is more compact growing, & doesn't turn color in the winter. It is sterile, & doesn't get cluttered up with cones or scatter seedlings around. I have a row of them in the back of my garden. At least around here, it has no pests or diseases. So all you city dwellers who are looking for material, take some inspiration from Nik.

Nik,

The pot you are asking about was made by the Yama-Aki kiln.

Kind regards,

Hi Nik,

I see a little foliage creeping around to the right side of the trunk. Are you planning to extend into this area. This might add further depth to the image.



Thanks for the update.

That's right Ian. As you can see in the previous pictures there is still no foilage on the right side of the trunk. So I left a branch at the back to grow. And it's still growing. I plan to grow it still a bit.

My Thuja 'Smaragd'

Post  bonsaisr on Tue Aug 30, 2011 7:55 pm

Somebody mentioned "Callitropsis nootkatensis."
Xanthocyparis nootkatensis (D.Don) Farjon & D.K.Harder is the accepted name.
A new one on me, too.

The thuja (the english name for it is eastern hemlock as I found out) was on two more exhibitions. It was exhibited at the last EBA in Germany.



And at a local Austrian exhibition, where it was declered for the best tree on the exhibition by all the visitors (by voting).

Hi Nik,

Your Thuja occidentalis 'smaragd' is called "Eastern White Cedar" in english, or "Arborvitae".

Eastern hemlock is Tsuga canadensis, not Thuja. Not that it matters, but I thought you may like to know this.

Excellent work on the deadwood, and congratulations on the quick delelopment to exhibition.
