CLUMP OLIVE

Post  mike page on Tue Aug 03, 2010 11:29 pm

I bought this olive last year at a bonsai show/sale. Height about 15 inches from the pot rim. Circumference of the base about 30 inches.
Today I did some trimming. Carving is coming soon.

Reminds me of a group of malagasy baobab trees Smile

Thanks, this reminded me to go look at some of my clump olives and man do they need trimming.
Looks like a bright future is ahead for this tree.

Hi Bob
Speaking of Kimura Nursery remended me of a visit I made there.
In November of 1989 I attended a seminar in Los Angeles concerning my job. I drove my pickup to LA figuring I might have time to do some nursery hopping. Which I did. Kimura Nursery was one of my stops.
While there I spotted a ginkgo stump in a wooden box. Into the truck it went.
Over time I did a lot of carving on it. It responded well and I've gotten a lot of enjoyment from it.
I don't have any recent images of it, but below is one taken in 2005

I remember that tree, looking pretty good. Stop in again next time you're in town. Really like your avatar tree.

Thanks Bob. That's the Japanese Black Pine that won an award at the !st National Bonsai Exhibit in Rochester. I was a very lucky guy that weekend. That bonsai has a special place in my heart.
