Haematoxylum campechianum from Guadeloupe

Post  fabrice B on Tue Jul 27, 2010 3:06 am

Hi all IBC members, I would like to introduce my tree, a campeche (Haematoxylum campechianum) collected in 2006. First branch are now done, as the dead wood work, I need to refine it for the second and third level of branch. Do you have any advice ?

Thanks a lot for your consideration.

here after collecting


after a workshop on dead wood


a good picture but still long time to pass


Finaly a pic today, still on going


And a drawing after the workshop on dead wood by Fran├žois Jeker.

Hello Fabrice. Fantastic work on the deadwood. Very impressive. Sorry but I don't know this species but it looks like your heading in the right direction.

I really want one of these. They are from Tropical American sometimes called Bloodwood. I think Erik Wigert in South West Florida has some

It looks like they have a very active club in Martinique with a lot of nice trees. I wish I read French.
