English Oak

Post  hinksy on Mon May 24, 2010 4:41 pm

This old Oak was collected about 15 years ago, and i have had it for 18 months, i rmoved all the branches and gave it a much needed repot, and then started to do some carving , i am not bothered bout the large leaves at this point , i can reduce them in size later , the tree was suffering from mildew , but a lime sulphur spray in the winter sorted that out , so i will post more pictures as it progresses,lol

Nice shape there coming along. I too collected an enormous Oak in 1998 from North Wales, trunk base is 24 inches in circumference. No specific style (bonsai) et al, just trying to emulate a tree in the wild. I removed all branches six years ago to get a shape I wanted. I have considered removing the top 50% and starting again. Next year I will repot into a smaller round mica pot.
