Very nice, Marija!
I also long to see it full of those lovely orange-red fruits!

I will take the opportunity to ask you something.... May I???
Well, there are two same trees (not so big and old like yours, of course) in my farmyard and I always have been considering to digg one of them up. One is standing straight up, a tree it is and the other one is kind of a bush.
So, can you give me some information about their root system.
Is it expanded sideways?
Do they have a long taproot going deep, deep to the underworld? Laughing
Is it difficult to digg arbutus up? Is it sensitive to drastic root pruning?

Thank you very much in advance!

We have experience only collecting from karst. We have collected 4 trees from very hard conditions, and all survived.
Root system is very similar like wild olive, like almost all Mediterranean species it has many roots near surface.

Very nice tree, hope you'll post a photo when it is in fruit. I really like the carving work. Is that a very hard wood?

Thanks. It is very soft wood if I compare it with Cornus mas or Fraxinus ornus.

Great progression one question . Will the leaves on this species reduce with time?? to me at the moment they seem to be a little large for the size of the tree but with flowering and fruiting it is a worthy sacrifice.

Yes it is possible, but it is still not time for that, because we want branches to get thicker, and crown more dense.

This is lovely, Marija!
I wonder..., in the photo Andrija seems to cut drastically some too heavy roots that have been kept when the tree had been collected? Or not?

All arbutuses have huge round mass under the surface, we call it 'keel'. And from that 'keel' roots are growing all around. Because of it ussually is pretty much heavy to collect them. And when you collect them you have to shorten it from (at least) bottom side to plant into pot. That was done after collecting in this case. But while transplanting we have to shorten it even more 1-2 cm to be able to put it into new pot. That is not stress to plant, because in that part there were no roots. Roots are at side all around.

Really nice tree! I was unfamiliar with this species until you posted this. The flowers are an added bonus. Does it produce fruit?

Yes, Chris.
The fruits are yellow-orange-red colour and very pretty. They are edible, but some people think their taste is peculiar, but I like them.
Honey is also produced from the flowers which is tasting bitter-sweet but it is very good tonic for health (cholesterol, protection against viruses, etc). This honey is also permitted to the diabetic people.
