Blaauw Juniper

Post  jgeanangel on Thu Aug 05, 2010 8:13 pm

Hello Everyone:) Here is another video that highlights some of the work I did recently on a blaauw juniper. This tree was originally started from nursery stock about 30+ years ago... I was lucky to acquire it from a friend about 2 years ago. It was originally styled as a cascade but had been stood up again before I received it. My favorite feature of this tree is the deadwood that spirals up the trunk. As I look at this tree after styling I think the overall image still needs to be compacted some.


Here is the tree just after I first received it...






Thanks,
John

Excellent transformation, John, and another detailed and informative video log of how you got there.

IMHO everything about the tree provides a pleasing image to the point where I find it difficult to conceive of it as a cascade. To me, it has balance, elegance and interest. Can you get better than that?

Thanks for the time and effort you put into providing us with these records of your projects. I really enjoy seeing them.

Fiona


btw is that just garden birds we can hear so clearly in the background or do you have an aviary?

Is this the same tree I saw today on a progression foto serie on the internet wich I found very impressive? I do not recall the site but it was for a competition and very intersting reading.

Thank you Fiona...it is just garden birds...they were probably fighting over who got to pull the moss off one of my trees:) The roots are about the only problem that remains from this tree's time as a cascade. The first time I worked it, I tried to pot without the stones and the roots just would not allow anything believable. I like stones anyhow:)

Jonas... Although they are from the same source, this is a different tree and species than the one to which you refer. However, I am in the process of giving that trees its second styling now and will most likely post the results soon.

Thanks,
John
